    well my battery went flat so charged and put back in car and somehow triggered alarm and reset remote locking so have had to disable the alarm but while doing so i seem to have knocked a wire out! im no electrical or even car expert so some help would be very much appreciated, i have some pics to see if anyone knows what goes where. also my passenger door stopped working which i think happened after so may be related? it makes the click when i press button but no movment and it doesnt do the 10% raise or whatever it is when you close door

    It's non standard wiring so no one will be able to easily help without seeing it.

    Do you have a voltmeter?

    Were the two wires in the first pic always taped like that? If so unlikely the red went to the other term on the fuse holder. It wouldn't reach and no kinks in the wire to indicate it being bent around.

    If both wires in the first pic are live (maybe one permanant and one ignition live - check before drawing conclusions) very unlikely to be joined together.

    Find all your loose ends and then see where they go to deduce.

    If in doubt get help and insulate any bare ends in the meantime as you don't want an electrical fire.

    As it's obviously an aftermarket car stereo, a car audio specialist might be better / cheaper.
