Hello All

I hope that someone might be able to help me.

I have a '96 Espace 2.1 Turbo Diesel, which wont start!!

I turn the key and i get nothing, no lights on the dashboard, nothing.
not even the central locking switch works.

I have tried jump starting, but i still didnt get anything at all ???????

i have checked the battery terminals and they are clean and all connected ok. I cannot see and cables that should be connected, and it started and drove fine yesterday?????

There was a smell like burning paper in the middle of the car, but i couldn't find the source. I suspect that this is the reason it isn't getting any power.

Is there anything around the centre of the car, inside that could have melted through its shielding, to cause a short in the electrics???

Confused and hoping that someone here might be able to shed some light on this problem. At least if i have some things to check i can rule them out before i take the car to the garage.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Currently in froglenut's garage:
Megane 1.6 RTE sport and Espace 2.1TD
