So this one has me stumped.

I am replacing the globe in the clock on the dashboard.
I took it all apart, unplugged everything from the back of the clock, changed the globe and started the car to check it was working, it wasn't obviously because I forgot to plug everything back in.

Once I had plugged everything back in I tried starting the car again to check the globe was working and all I heard was a small "click" from the motor and then everything went dead.

I have no power going to anything anymore ( Interior lights, accessories and no noise from the engine bay ).

If anyone has any idea as to what might be going on it would be greatly appreciated as I currently have 3 out of 4 windows stuck down at the moment.

TIA

(EDIT) I should also add I have checked all the fuses under the dash and they all seem to be ok

Have a look in your engine bay and have a look in the fuse box, there will be a yellow ignition fuse, check that because chances are, that fuse will be blown. :D

Turns out she was just tired. Gave her a 30 minute break and bam, she started first time!

In all honesty though i have no idea what the problem was lol.
