ZS 180 newbie with a couple of issues

Hi, newbie to the site as just purchased a Zs 180, couple of questions if I may,, oil change, what recommended oil should I use, also is there a guide on here as I don't wanna mess it up,,plus I aint looked under it yet, also radio in car, the live doesn't work, speakers are fine as tested, as new to the Zs, ive changed the fuse under steering wheel which had blown, cig lighter works now but the interior clock just lights up but doesn't display, plus still no live to radio, not the best at electrics so just wondering if there is a fuse in the engine bay fusebox,,any help appreciated, my 180 is a 2003 plate so guessing its a mark 1
cheers gang

Not sure if you have a mk1 or mk2 ZS but fuses are as follows.
Mk1 dash fuse number 23 covers radio, cigar lighter, clock and is 15 amp.
Mk2 dash fuse number 19 covers radio, cigar lighter, clock and is 15 amp.
Engine bay fuse box, fuse number 8 covers radio, clock and is also 15 amp same on mk1 or mk2.
Worth noting the clock display often fails on these cars, sometimes it's just a couple of pixels but more extreme cases display completely fails which will give you a backlit clock with no digits showing. Try fuse 8 in engine bay first and see if it helps.
