all wires were used except the folowing:
Brown/wht = dimmer in
Grey = dimmer out

Yellow/Black = Phone mute

now for sum reason my brake lights wont work and also my dash lights dont work, i replaced fuses and they still dont work

Hey i recently had the same problem, the brake and dash lights are on the same circuit. My problem was that the tail light globe was shorting.

pull out your brake light bulbs. and see if the dash lights work. if they do replace the bulbs one at a time until you find the faulty one

ok i took all 3 brake bulbs out and replaced fuses, but still the dash light fuse blew and so did the brake fuse when i stepped on the brake.

is there any other way to check what the problem is or should i just take it to a autoelectrician

May not be but check the wiring harness behind the boot liner on the drivers side near the fuel flap. The wiring may have rubbed through on the sheet metal.
