Well the word is eureka.....ive only gone and sorted it. I ran a piece of wire from the fuse box to the back but lost all the back lights and dash lights so I reconnected the original wire and went hunting....I started from the fuse box al9ng the wire which was getting warm until I got to beside the passenger seat where it was hot and when I squeezed I heard the boot latch click.....the wires were hidden under plastic so i cut the plastic until I reached the wire where I found 5 wires melted together. I pulled them apart taped them separately then started the car....and low and behold everything came on. I left it running and no hot wires...at last. ..im so over the moon with myself for persevering and pushing on when people told me I hadnt a clue....get in!!!

Okay....I have an update....I bought a new fuse board today and plugged it in...I now have interior lights....I opened the boot and unscrewed the light fittings and fiddled with the bulb...the light came on but smoke started to smoke....I isolated the wire so I now know which wire is the problem its going from the fuse board going backwards towards the back of the car....I wonder if its the light fitting itself.......

Well I dropped the back seats and climbed in the boot and sing a screw driver unlocked the boot, but when I close it it still won't work. I think there's a shortage somewhere on the passenger side because while the boot was open I checked the lights by switching bulbs and I now know the bulbs are ok.. So it must be a lack of power getting down that side....process of elimination lol
