That sounds like your battery is dead, a new one should fix that problem

Best Answer

But the lights work and it wouldn't cut the engine out while it was running as it's a diesel.

Did you check the fuses under the hood? There are some big ones under there. Sounds like you may have blown the big 30 amp fuse. Now when you say no electronics, does that mean you have no power to the ignition also? Like you turn the key and there's nothing? Or is the engine turning over?

There's nothing when I turn the key. Where is the 30amp fuse? Not on the main fuse board then?

The fuse boxes are usually under the hood near the battery, or under the driver side dash board.

Thanks guys it was a break in a random main feed wire. All sorted. Merry Christmas
