Not sure about blue and red lights but when I put a new stereo in, my clock and trip kept resetting to zero. You have to switch the permanant & switched lives over to sort the problem. May be of help but only if you've just fitted a stereo too :confused:

Hope you suss it fella T:

Hi Jason,

Have a read of this thread, post 3 tells you the colours T:

There are also threads on 'resetting' that direct you to check fuse 9
