Hi mate this might help, try putting a jump lead from the earth terminal of the battery straight on to any metal part of the engne e.g gearbox, make sure it has a good connection. If this works you have an engine earth away.
If not email me back with more symptoms.
The OP has fixed the problem with a new battery flying_clutchman.
Glad you got it sorted mate. And good man for sorting out your sunroof drains. Thats yet another common fault on the Lag II.
