Hi

I has the same problem mate and it was a fuse in the boot so if it's not fuses i'm not too sure but maybe you never checked back there. Think it was caused by my stereo not being earthed properly.

More technical people can probably offer more useful advice.

Good luck

should add its an R32. I have just had my stereo fitted. Would the stereo not being earthed properly affect the fuse keep being blown?? The stereo has been professionally fitted and not by halfords!!

Thanks John
