Reset the CPU using a code reader as the program may be corrupted

    Thank you I tried the code reader and the code reader does nothing, doesn't even communicate with the CPU. shows nothing on the card reader screen.

    there are special pins to connect and there are a different connector cables that connect different pins fpr the code reader. Just because the code reader (or the operator is not familiar with the set up for your car) dosen't mean to say that there are no faults recorded or the code reader cannot reset the CPU.

All the dash display lights suddenly went out

Modern CAN-bus electronics can do some very strange things when the battery voltage is very low and your description of events matches almost exactly with those experienced by a friend shortly before he needed to replace his car battery.

My own experience tells me some stereos should not be fitted to some cars or a discharged battery will result (unless the wiring is suitably modified). It is important to read the instructions - carefully!

I strongly suggest you have your battery and charging system tested and the stereo removed until it is discovered to be compatible...
