the harness in the steering column tends to be a bit tight. try raising the steering wheel a tad and see if that fixes the problem

Make sure that the contact points on the faceplate and radio are clean.

maybe there is a reset button. Not sure if its on the face or the radio itself.
If that doesn't work then I'm out of ideas.

when we purchased the car the ad said its rev counter was stuck but when we got there the guy said he had sorted that out but didnt know how he had done it and that the stereo stopped working at the same time, looking at the history she has had a problem with interior lights and the spotlights seem to be staying on too, do you think it could all be related? driving me crazy now, i just want her to be ok

I'd say check the fuses. I'm not sure what else it could be unless the radio was installed wrong.
