Hi all,

        just returned from Gaydon after a pleasant morning, turned the engine off for 5 minutes and went to start it ..nothing. No lights or power ,tried again after a couple of minutes every thing working as normal..Battery connections look good, could it be the ignition lock....cant think what else to look at.

When you say no lights - was that just lights on the dash or headlights too Andy ?   If just the dash lights, then suspect the ignition switch.  If it was everything then it can only be the battery connections.

Same thing happened  to me. The + cable from battery to starter was corroded at the

spade terminal at the starter end causing intermittent total loss of all electrics.

Cleaned up terminal & all restored.


                                      Best of luck

Don't forget both ends of the battery earth connection Andy.
