    right seem to have found the problem was the part of the harness that goes from car to the boot the wires were really badly frayed and were touching each other only caught it because when i changed a bulb in the number plate the wiring harness started smoking must have been touching the live of the number plate light but traced the wire down to the red/green wire in the central locking
    in the boot as this is totally burned through in more then one place now iv cut and seperated the wires my dash back light has come back on but my central locking has totally blown so is it easy to replace the full central locking or will i only need to replace part of it
