Hi, have changed my friends stereo, had the usual problem with the permanent live, so swapped the wires over, and in turn the car went into Eco mode, but neither of us realised until he went to leave and nothing happened with the dash. I have a C2 myself, and when in Eco mode the dashboard won't light up or anything but will come on when the engine is started. I've not got access to the car until this evening but was thinking of changing the wires back, and resetting the BSI.

He has lights, indicators, hazards etc, but no speedo, rev counter, radio, clock etc.

Anything else anyone can suggest?

You may have made a mistake with the wiring and either shorted something out or blown a fuse in the fuse box.
