I hate to tell you this, but you may be in for a shocker mate, i.e. the dreaded dead-dashboard syndrome. It is quite a common occurance especialy if you jump start it.

For the sake of oithers who may need to use jump leads now the weather gets colder, do not connect both leads to the battery but only the + . The earth should go from the good battery's terminal to a substantial metal part of the engine.

Dead dashboard may be of help to you.

I understand there is a weak connection behind the glovebox that you might want to take a look at, but I've never had the problem myself so haven't tried to solve it first hand.

Jump start at your own risk and peril as I am not recommending it; but if you must, I am told that the way I described above is safer for the electronics.
