My car stereo blew the fuse on the back of it. Replaced but in shorted out. The fuse OK on the back. But after it shorted out the engine management light came on indicating Dpf fault and when I turn on engine the preheating light comes on for a short period.

My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.If you no longer need help post a simple reply to let me know.

You will need to contact a dealer with your vehicles VIN number so they can check and tell you if warranty will cover this repair.It should but its hard to say for sure from here.

It sounds like you may have shorted wiring causing the fuse to blow out as well as the other issues here.I would contact the dealer to see if they can diagnose and repair this under warranty for you.

Thanks for the response but I have already booked it in for a diagnostic. I'm working away from home hence why I used this site to see if there was an easy solution.
