Usually stereos have 2 power feeds - one which is live all the time for remembering radio stations etc and, probably in your case, to feed the anti theft light. The other is switched through the ignition. There's a chance the dash illumination works from the same "ignition on" feed.
I'd check the fuses again - it sounds too coincidental that both things went at the same time. If the fuses are ok then check for both power feeds at the stereo and work backwards from there.
