My Girlfriend got a mate to install a CD Player and now the car has no tail or dash lights and the CD Player has no memory WTF??? Its obviously a wiring issue but i know F... All about it. How much to...
Stereo wiring is actually really simple, the memory problem is probably down to an simple swapped wire, on a head unit there is a red and a yellow cable, one of which needa a permanent feed to keep your memory. As it is at the moment, if the cd player works with no key in the ignition then it seems as though these two have been swapped. If you dont need the cd player to run with they key out, simply swap these two wires. If you do want it to run with no key, then connect both red and yellow to the same feed, try it, if it doesn't work, conect both to the other feed.
Mind you dont touch any cables to any metal as you may cause a short and blow a fuse.
Chances are that it is a fuse that is sottping your rear lights from working, locate your fuse box. This may be in the glove box, below the steering wheel or under the bonnet near to your battery. Check in the lid for the fuse box for i diagram of which fuses do which tasks. Locate check and change if needed the one for your rear lights. If you can find no diagram, remove each fuse one by one to see which has blown and replace with one of the same rating.
I hope that this has been helpful, give yourself a couple of hours to do it and you could save yourself a chunck of cash. An auto electrician will charge you for diagnosing the fault, tracing the fault and repairing the fault. Could work out to be costly.
