Hi, after some advice, my vx220 turbo stopped working, I have no power to start the car, radio, heater, indicating lights,wipers and all dash does not work, battery new, interior lights, front lights and hazard lights, alarm works. So it’s strange, any help would be good. The AA checked all fuses and battery and all ok. Everything just seems dead.
Thanks.

Worth checking the secondary battery connections that branch off the main battery terminals.

Did they check the big beefy fuses hidden away under the wiper motor area? Don’t think they are listed in the normal manuals etc. If you follow the positive cable from the battery you’ll find them.

Good luck!

I was just reading about them, looks promising as they never checked them, didn’t know about them, I will check after work tomorrow, thanks guys, hope it’s an easy fix.
Will post if it is.

All fixed and she lives...feel an idiot now, it was one of the positive wires that clamps on to the positive terminal which came loose, a washer and a screw down sorted it, wouldn’t have checked all wires leading to fuse thou if it wasn’t for the advice....cheers

Just ventured out to take a photo of the big fuses as well!

For future reference these are the big fuses....
