Glad you got it sorted and it was nothing major! :thumbsup: Annoying that AA didn’t pick it up? Or was the cable disconnected after that?

You said you had the battery replaced in July, so have you not driven it since then? :?

Last time on road was December have started it about 4 weeks back as for the cable it sort of sprung and tucked itself down the side of the bodywork and fuse box but as my excuse for not seeing it stands as for the AA man he did his best but when the Auto electrician showed me where it was then it was almost invisible to notice
Did I feel like a right Plum,usually I would but not on this occasion,took the auto electriciannabout 1 minute dead to sus it out,

I really don’t understand at all how a wire can spring off the 250A fuse but hey ho at least you are back up and running!

It wasn’t me that took it off in the first place,the first as man is guilty and he didn’t have a replacement battery,the second a man took over but like me didn’t see or realise the lead had dropped down,all sorted now,it’s usually something stupid which it was and also some one stupid ha ha,thanks for the advice
