Question Fitted stereo and now car is dead!? Advice needed

Hi All,

Bit of a bizarre problem here! Today we fitted my new stereo headunit into my 53 reg clio and the stereo works fine... great, until we go to start the car and it won't turn over! The lights, wipers, windows, and central locking won't work either (although its not all the electrics as the clock and heater blowers still work). We haven't disconnected any wires (at least not intentionally anyway, and can't see any that have been knocked loose) and all the fuses look fine?! Any ideas?

When I turn the key the ignition lights up but the car won't turn over, it just makes a vibration-type noise and the pointers on the dials vibrate for a few minutes, then it does nothing at all!

I was wondering if it might be the multi-timer unit?

Any suggestions very welcome, need to get my car up & running again ASAP.

Thanks in advance
