    I was wondering if anyone could give me any advice or suggestions.

    A few weeks ago my radio was stolen, they left the wires hanging out
    the front. I didn’t touch any of the wires until friday when I bought
    a new stereo. I was working out which wire went where when the red and
    black wires touched and sparked.

    Since that happened various things have stopped working, the main
    major faults are my brake lights don’t work, nor windscreen wipers.

    I tried replacing some fuses but it didn’t seem to make much
    difference. Today I had another look at the fuses and tried replacing
    them and starting the car to see if it made any difference. After
    checking them I found at least one 25A had blown.

    My car will not start up at all now and I’m really miserable about it
    all. One other point is whenever I press the brake pedal the battery
    light comes on.

    Can anyone give me any suggestions. I think I’ll get some new fuses
    tomorrow, but I think something must be wrong if they keep blowing.
    The one that blows is to do with stop lights and the wiper motor.

    I don't know the 106 so cant offer specific help but if you are continually
    blowing fuses, take a blown one and connect a low power 12 bulb to the two
    contacts. use this to trace the fault. With all the relevant electrical
    loads turned off, the bulb should not light. If it does then there is still
    a current flowing. If it is at full brightness then a new fuse will almost
    certainly blow. Clear the fault before fitting a fuse and proceding with the

    Good luck

    you still have at least one blown fuse
    recheck one at a time removing each to look at it

    Well I checked each fuse and the fuse box for any current with a
    multimeter and replaced the fuses and the left headlight bulb. My rear
    lights and everything work fine now except when I indicate right and
    touch the brake pedal it speeds up. The left side doesn’t do this at

    I think the battery is now holding its charge okay but I’ve booked it
    into the garage for friday to have a look at the indicator problem.
    From what I’ve read in the the haynes manual I may have a relay
    problem. I couldn’t look at the relays because I couldn’t get the
    glovebox out! But I think it will probably just need cleaning.

    Thank you for your help!
