The lights are on but nobody home

Well as the title states last night wife gets in the zed to come home from work turns the key and ............... nothing all lights on everything normal just DEAD tried a couple of things but nada.So zed being recovered this morning and off to DR Mike at the shed to see if he can shed some light on the proceedings while there little bit of investigation on an annoying tinny rattle when going over small bumps :| and replacing smashed fog light so all being good back on road later think she’s had enough time of road recently and was really enjoying driving her again fingers crossed 🤞 anyone else had this problem with the living dead syndrome

Battery?

Have you thought that your wife is possibly cursed and you should seriously think on trading her in for a newer model. Sometimes these things happen. It's for the best.
