    Default BIG PROBLEMS - car wont start!!! HELP

    Right i got myself a vec c 2.2 (z22yh) on a 2005 model (pre-facelift) the car had been damaged at the front and both steering wheel and dash airbags deployed.
    The car has now had the facelift conversion. New dashboard and airbags seatbelt pretensioners and airbag ecu.
    So today i went to vauxhall got some number plates and a battery (last 2 things i needed)

    Got home fitted the battery and nothing. I only have 1 3 button key and non of the buttons work. If i put he key in the ignition the headlights turn on by themselfs and i cant turn them off. The clocks dont light up but i can hear the fuel pump working. The radio works but wont eject the cd. The controls on the door panel work the mirrors and windows. The interior light and the boot light work. Apart from that nothing else works on the car even the hazards!!! so please someone give me the bad news gently.

    Just cant get my head around it as non of the wiring was damaged anywhere. The headlights which i've now unplugged came out of a 57 reg sri (i havent altered the connectors?)

    Worst of all i'm meant to be going away in less than 3 weeks and i need the car or am ka fluffed.

    help guys/gals

    Don't believe the green bit for a moment. Never over look the simple things as you could be wasting a lot of time and money.

    Those indicators aren't always accurate.

    Was the car running prior to the rebuild?

    Sounds like you're going to have to backtrack your work.
