TAS, Australia

After sitting around for 2 months finally at the point where I should be able to start the wagon, but it's no go. Turn the key over and there's power and that, but nothing happens - engine doesn't even attempt to crank over (on either LPG or petrol - although on LPG I can hear some clicks and flow on the tank).
Any ideas?

If I leave the key in and over the car beeps at me after a while, 3 beeps gap, 3 beeps, gap, 3 beeps....

visual inspection of the fuses? or multimeter tested? And it'll be the courtesy lights fuse that'll kill smartlock.

As long as you were wearing you're beer-goggles at the time.
