check the relevant fuses in the cabin fuse thing...and check the fuse on the headunit...

if that doesnt work, pull the active and neutral wires out from the stereo, and attach a 12v globe and see if it lights up...if it does, your stereo's royally f**k, if it doesnt...your wirings royally f**k...

ive checked for blown fuses , but they seem to be fine. Im goin to check the wiring 2mra and then see if the headunit works when i connect the black wire to the negative of the battery and red and yellow to positive. If that all fails then i guess ill hav to take the headunit back to where i got it and see if they can repair it.

replace it and see... but wouldn't have thought boot release would stop your lights and stereo from working... :?

Yeh, all those constant power components such as boot release, interior light etc run off the same fuse.
