under-dash wire question

I have a bizarre short in my car I was hoping yous here might be able to help me with.

If I open the door it pops the fuse for the interior light, sends a surge through the head unit (which must have rec'd it's final surge as it stopped working last week, have power but no sound), and the clock stops until I restart the car. Fog lights also don't work, nor does "flash to pass" on stalk - doubting the last 2 are related but figured I'd mention. I've been keeping that fuse out as such.

PO "snip'd" an aftermarket CD changer out, I found those wires last night - was a red, black, and yellow t'd off of the output lines to the OE stereo harness - he snip'd them when he could have just unplug'd them - genius.

My question is... I also found a snipped wire that comes out of the black taped harness - it's brown with a white stripe under the black tape. It's easily recognizable for you gurus here, it "Y's" alone out of a thicker black harness that runs to the round 5pin plug that plugs into the firewall just beneath the glovebox. Hopefully that triggers some thoughts?

Anyway, I'm no electronics whiz (not any whiz really) - any insight here greatly appreciated. TIA and happy f'n FRIDAY.
