Thanks for your reply. You are quite right, dead flat battery. That leads me to the next question, i have a lot of circuits that are draining the battery and so I pulled some fuses out (eg car computer and a few other non essentials) this lower the drain down rate but still drains some fractions of an amp.

Any case now the battery is actually stuffed and I cant get it to charge up, and I havent driven it for some time, seems a shame to say but Ive never had any Japo cause such electrical grief.

I guess I need to buy a new battery and get it started and take it along to auto shop and pay big bucks to get going again.

Do you know of any good on line guides to electrical problems or where to get the full wiring diagram?
