    a brief idea of what ive had to deal with so far
    i bought a e46 318i auto touring that was a non runner had it delivered to me got it running by changing the fuel pump woohoo so a nice easy fix there no on to the problem it appears that the previous owner either attached the battery the wrong way round or tried to jump start the car with the leads the wrong way so when i turned it over the alternator nearly caught fire. I had no dash cluster working, no air con controls and no stereo. I have checked all the fuses which are fine, i have changed the clocks from my other e46 and everything works there now but the stereo and air con dont power on other than when i turn the lights on the aircon buttons light up with the dash.
    Any ideas of what i can try to get them woring again im slightly worried that something else has been fried
    i will appreciate any help with this

    Kinda looks as if you will have to transfer the radio and aircon controls too.

    The stereo should have its own fuse at the back of the unit,maybe that's blown but ive no idea on the heater panel.
    All I can suggest is look at the wiring diagrams at BMWPLANET.COM.
