I drove my car fine this morning, stopped at a shop, locked it and did what I needed to.
When I came back it unlocked and the dashboard lit up in position 2, as soon as I turned the key to start it, everything died: no lights, no turn over, nothing.
I’ve called breakdown but they have their own unique issues, so I wondered if anyone out there had any suggestions?

Did the breakdown person do some checks like what pheasant_plucke said and also did the battery and alternator get tested?

On my R56 ignition came on but absolutely nothing when pressing start, not even a click.
It was the earth strap attached to the top engine mount on the LH side of the engine whch was ever so slightly loose.
Tightened it up and it was fine and has been ever since.

Turns out when the battery was replaced, the bolts were not tightened adequately.
Suffice to say, the bolts were tightened and she is purring again.

thanks for the responses ?
