    Astra SXi, pics and advice please!

    Firstly, hi everyone, hope your all cool... i was a member of the original Astra sport when that was going, things look all posh round these parts now..

    Anyway; my car:





    Its being modded (slowly) by meself, had it about 3 months, and have installed an impressive ICE setup, aftermarket grille, painted the calipers red, added a boot spoiler etc, and going to do some nice little subtle mods.

    Anyway, its off the road at the moment. What would be causing the dash fuse to keep blowing from behind the stereo? Checked the stereo fuse which is ok, also all blades are ok (apart from the one that keeps blowing) but each time i put the headunit in, it wont power up

    Any ideas?

    What amp fuse does your stereo use? you might find the fuse in the car is smaller, in my old corsa I just changed it to match the fuse in th stereo and prob sorted.
    I'm after another Coupe Turbo

    Its a 10w in the head unit, and a 15 in the car! Well I say 15, its 20 until tommorow (saving me the cost of hiring a car)

    Would a blown amp (in the head unit) cause it d'you think?
