i am a complete newbie at this and at the min i am working blind

Don't stay blind. Divide and conquer.

- Write a separate sketch for each major junction.  Fake input values if necessary.

- Put lots of intermediate results out to Serial Monitor.

- Get each subsystem to work first.

-Then review all the Constants, Variables, Libraries, subroutines for each subassembly and merge the stuff above SETUP on the simplest subassembly and make sure you can compile.

- Add the other code piece by piece, checking that you can compile OK

- Finally make the "real" data come from the "real" code and see if it works. Keep a lot of the Serial Monitor stuff working unless it messes up timing.

Slow down and make sure you understand each piece.

And Good Luck!
