UK car repair questions? Ask a mechanic for answers ASAP
Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.
Did the vehicle start and run when the radio was plugged in/hooked up but not pushed into its recess?
Let me know so we can continue,thanks Pete
I will be here tomorrow from around 5 am Mountain time US until about this time again.
Double check and make sure all fuses are o.k. in all fuse panels as I am unsure on what this wire is for for sure that grounded out.
If all fuses are found to be o.k. you might try and disconnect the battery for about 5 minutes then reconnect it to reset the electronics and see if this corrects the issue as well.
If this does not work then you will need to have the fault codes read out/checked with a compatible scan tool to see what codes are set in all computers to help determine the cause of the issue here.It is possible a computer was fried or damaged when this wire shorted out.
