Ok so I installed it as i did the one before but for some reason now the electrics in the following dont work:

- the light that comes on when you open the door
- the indicaters
- the clock on the dash resets when i turn the key to off
- none of the stations i set stay as presets it just resets

The headlights, hazards main beam, fog lights still work fine just the above only work when the key is in the ignition.

I havent pulled out any wires or anything like that. The battery is pretty much brand new and isnt faulty the only thing i can think of is the 12v constant power cable has broken or something but i havent dont anything to break it?

I am clueless can anyone please give me some advice.


hi and welcome to the forum.

I cant really help for the indicators and lights but as for the cd player reseting every time i may have an easy fix for you.
on the back of the player there should be 2 heavy wires, generally a red one and a yellow one? they should be joined together using bullet crimps, swap these around so that the red is connected to the yellow. these are just constant feed and switched feed so swapping them wont cause any harm.
