Hi Steve - after that amount of time of the road I wouldn't be surprised the battery is duff - it is possible the battery has reversed its polarity - hapened to me once - unfortunately once that happpens its damaged. Can you get a multimeter to check if the polarity - unfortunately car elctrics don't take kindly to being wired the wrong way round. I suggest you borrow a battery - even an old one as long as the polarity is correct.
