Last week I went out to my car turn the key, heard the starter click but nothing else. Absolutely no power after that, not even lights on the dash, horn working or lights on. Took battery out trickle charged over night, placed back in the car and followed the FAQ for seeing if there was a drain, couldn't see one at all and took it at that time as possibly just lots of short journeys and lack of use since COVID.
However the same happened again 2 days later. Got an auto electrician out who looked over it, stated there was no drain, found the alternator was charging well and he found the positive connection was quite bad so cleaned it up and suggested a new battery was needed.
Luckily the battery had a lifetime guarantee so took it back and got a brand new Bosch S5. Installed and started fine this morning, took daughter to nursery, then went to work. 9 hrs later come back to car and turned the key and got the same result, starter clicked but didn't turn over and no power at all. This would come and go (such as doing the same thing and minutes later turn the key and nothing happened at all). It seems to me that it might be a connection issue somewhere, perhaps an earth or dodgy wore somewhere?
However although I've had my car nearly 12 yes now I'm not great with electrics, anyone got any advice? I've got the auto electrician coming back but would want some ideas to throw at him.
Many thanks for reading
