trying to get my t16s back on the road,its been stood for a while. ive fixed a few things nd was going to take it for an mot test next week, but it seems the electrical system now has a couple of problems ,the windows,sunshine roof,indicators,wipers blower,heater,mirror adjusters and the horn all have stopped working.the car starts fine and all the lights work.also the dash lights stay on after the ignition is turned off:cry: :cry: :cry:

As this is affecting so many electrical devices, I'd start by checking all the earthing points. There's one on the front cross-member in the engine bay (base of the rad), um another from the alternator. There's also one in the boot IIRC.

Where are the other earthing points guys?

right, got the things that wouldnt switch on sorted(one of the wires was off the ignition module) just the dash light to turn of.

hmm, when my dash lights refuse to go ON I just give the top of the dash a heavy swat...maybe it will work in reverse:nono;
