    well still yet to check the sterio but the number plate lights are still on even with the dimmer unplugged. so im hoping that this is also to do with the sterio.

    Did you peel back the covering over the boot wiring fully to check the loom? http://www.bimmerforums.co.uk/forum/...problems-t208/

    The wire that feeds the licence plate lights also goes to Cassette box light, wiper/washer module and the ZKE control module.
    Your car doesn't have check control does it (tells you when a bulb has blown)
