Hi guys, and girls, I\'ve got a strange problem. I was messing around with installing an aftermarket stereo. I\'ve followed advice on this forum i.e. grounding the stereo to the bolt on the driver\'s side centre console and wiring it up according to the guides on here and the using them to convert to the wiring colours of an iso connector block.
Somewhere along the way though I\'ve messed something up or possibly the stereo went mad and has tried to destroy my car.
After I gave up with trying to get the stereo to work, which it didn\'t properly, only illuminated the display but didn\'t really do anything else I noticed that my interior lights weren\'t working.
When I open the doors or the boot the automatic lights do not not turn on, none of them, and the door and hatch light were continuously illuminated. I undid all the wiring for the stereo to how it was prior to making the changes but although it seemed to improve the problem slightly (the door and hatch lights on the idiot light cluster went out finally) but still no interior lights with any of the doors or the boot open. However, when I switch on the pilot lights they very slowly begin to illuminate but they are very dim and also this causes the door and hatch light on the idiot light cluster to illuminate, again even with doors closed. In fact, seemingly, any activation of the interior lighting circuit cause these problems.
Very strange, I think somehow I have damaged the interior lighting circuit but would have thought that would mean that it simply wouldn\'t work as opposed to kind of work, badly.
Anyway, if this has been damaged. Does anyone know how to go about sorting this problem out? I\'m trying to return my fc to as close to stock condition as possible and this is the first time I\'ve taken a step backwards, hopefully this isn\'t the beginning of a new direction for me where I go and start ruining the car... Maybe I\'ll go get some twenty five inch spinners for wheels next if that\'s the case.
Thanks in advance.
