    Sounds like a dead battery, any room in the carpark to bump it?

    Is that not a flat battery? Dash would still light with a little power and make a clicking noise. Did the same in my ex's 2003 micra

    Another vote for a dead battery, or loose connections - jump start it from the posts under the bonnet, remember to turn the lights and heater on before removing the jump leads though...
