Seriously though there is obviously something wrong with the cars electrics somewhere and an auto electrician may be able to diagnose it .

If it was my caer I would be glad to see the back of it and be considering looking for a suitable a replacement.

Good luck !
It's possible it could be an earth fault....
wow youve had some problems!!!! the noise is prob the heater motor its located about where the noise is come from . The flashing light is indicating a fault with either the "PATS" module or sensor and thats why its cutting out .
Question Author
hey essex bloke why is the heater motor running like that anyways and pats is the immobiliser yes what do i do???
Although you have a second hand fuse box is it the right one for your car i.e do the numbers on both match ? i reckon the fuse box isnt right still hence the motor still running . The flashing light i reckon is caused by a short in the circuit trapped wire or blown fuse or dodgy module .
Question Author
the fusebox was taken from an exact same car ,same year,same engine etc,and has been running grfeat for two weeks this problem started when i was driving it in the pouring rain for like an hour something has got wet somewhere i think
