Any ideas before I start rippin into it?
Driving back from work everything just stopped. No lights, radio, hazards, fag lighter or nowt.
Gonna check the battery but started sweet as a nut without any issues.
Can battery's fail just like that?

Put a volt meter across the battery whens its running and take a reading of what voltage is there.

Won't start at all. No electrics at all. Nothing on a volt meter over battery terminals, so I'm guessing its battery.

It was weird too - it didn't steadily get crapper like batteries normally do when they're on their way out. It worked, then it didn't.

Try another battery on it first I reckon - before fucking about with anything else. smile

Also when jump starting with a shot battery clamp the earth to the body or engine so you bypass the dead battery. smile
