I would agree Greenside - it is good practice especially on modern cars due to their low voltage electronics.

Modus fuses

Thanks for the advice but I'm afraid the damage appears to be done. I've put on a new battery and everything works fine except the dash display. I've checked all the under bonnet fuses. I haven't checked all the glove box fuses as the diagram doesn't mention anything that may be the cause. If anyone has any more ideas of anything I can try I'd be grateful. Would there be any point removing the dash? If so has anyone done this that can give me advice please. Or is this something best left to an expert.

Personally, I think it is more important to avoid making sparks when connecting and that's why I would connect both positive ends first then the negative to the good battery and lastly the negative to the chassis or engine. I guess this can also be done with the sidelights on so I'll bear that in mind should the need ever arise again.

@ Rustymini... Did you read the thread I pointed you to and did it seem like the same problem?

Battery Fuse Location

I understood that the battery fuse is located on the positive battery terminal.
There is also a fuse box located behind the left headlamp, which appears to be "hidden" behind a cowl.
