Took it for long drive - next day dead again, suspect battery may have died. Question is why won't it jump start - tried using a Volvo diesel with new jump leads connected + to + & - to - (also tried - to chassis), doesn't even turn over!
check the earth strap from the engine/gearbox to the bodywork. They are usually a common problem and are only a couple of quid to replace. Try using a jump lead connected to the negative battery terminal to somewhere on the engine and see if it starts.
