Disconnect all the audio equipment and then try using the car. See what happens and let us know.

Looks like the wiring for the audio system is not done properly. Have it checked by a good electrician.

Which wiring are you using. Boss cable or some thing else. Also check all the amplifier connection points like ground and battery wire.

i have problem in electricals of my car . the problem only persist when audio system is on . when i press car horn there is disturbance in sound system.when i switch headlights on then also there is disturbance in sound system. when i flash headlights the audio system shutdown and restarts again automatically. i have got it checked from a mechanic but he is also unable to solve it he told me that audio system is faulty so i tried installing my car audio system in my friends car to check whether the system is faulty but it worked there without any problem.plz help me out because there is a lot of disturbance in the sound while pressing horn and flashing lights.

It seems to me that the HU ground is not connect correctly . Try grounding the HU directly to the car chassis rather than connecting through the car wiring.
