stereo shorting out smartlock??
My brother owns an ed fairmont, I put a stereo in it about 1 year ago with no problems until now. The fuse in the back of the head unit blew and I told him to replace it, When he replaced it and plugged the head unit back in, the car wouldn't start. I had a look and realised the smart lock had no power, he took it to the auto elec's and they said it was a frayed power wire from the stereo to the smart lock and they "fixed it". My brother took his stereo out because we had to leave the car when it wouldn't start, and now when he put it back in, (after the car had been driving, and we verified it was "fixed") the power to the smart lock has been cut off again and as a result we can not get it to start. To top it off a sign from the mechanics fell on his car and his bonnet's now dented (they are going to pay to fix though).
If anybody has experienced this or has any idea's it would be great to hear from you.
