The post above me is excellent advice and I agree I don't think the two problems are related.

Idle air control valve is easily checked by starting your car and pulling off the little rubber hose - the revs should climb immediataly (as if it's a cold winter's morning and your engine is starting from being cold).

If there's no power going through to your rear plate lights trace the wiring loom and find the earth, it could be corroded. Whether or not the number plate lights share their earth straps with your rear tail lights I don't know entirely.

thanks peeps ill check that and get back to you but just so i know can i run the rear plate light to the side lights on the rear if there was something bad or cant find the prob and do you have the pick of were the control valve is pls as iv never had to do one before thanks...... luke

1.sand or grind patch down and remove all paint and remove all rust if you dont want it to come back that is..
2.if its rusted right through you will need to weld a panel in place or you can use fiberglass to fill up the hole with some wire mesh ....for a cheep job
3.sand down the fiber glass to shape but sanding it down so you can spread filler over the top so it will be level with the bodywork (metal) not paint
4.once you have done that put your filer on the patch and sand down with 120 paper to knock the top off then 240 to fine it out (ALL BEING LEVEL WITH THE BODYWORK) you will prob have to do this to or three times to get it right !!
5.spray hi build (gray) primer over it about 5ish times to get the build of paint then sand down with wet 2500 paper not sanding through the primer .
6.once this is all done clean all of the area and mask it all up then you will be ready for painting
7.spay the patch ............you must give it as meny coats as it needs to get the right shade
8.remove all overspray then laquer your panel.. once it is all dry then give the side of the car a good t-cut ....

hope this helps but only your self can get it right
