    driving up a hill and stalled the engine. Went to restart it and no power to either permanent or ignition circuits. It is a 2010 Peugeot boxer based vehicle and I am in the middle of nowhere in Ireland. Any advice please. Haven't started checking but will do so now.

    The battery in the cab floor has a quick release on the negative.. Once I had a very similar situation..
    The clip had come undone, we had just returned from Morocco so I put it down to all the bumping on their roads..

    WHOOPS... Just read your reply as i finished typing..


    TOLD YA.. :)

    Thanks Tonka.
    Wife also guessed what it was before me. Feeling very proud of herself.
