Hi, hoping someone knows what might be the issue with my partner van.

van died on me last night and had to get towed home. engine cut out and all power from dash related electronics stopped working. I have interior light and central locking and radio works. I have no power to windows, dash, cig lighter and engine wont turn. anyone got any ideas of where to start. AA man said its unlikely an immobilizer issue as it wouldn't stop the power coming on. he couldn't connect a diagnostic machine as he said he needed ignition on. thanks in advance.

no damp. checked earths seem all ok. the sensor in the ignition is detecting the key as it wont lock doors via remote if key is in and turned (used key without battery in ignition and working remote locks doors)

I have already been under and check starter wiring but don't see why the starter failing would stop the dash light coming on when key is turned. the car was running for about 3 hours before it cut out. is it possible it the ignition switch itself. was thinking as the sensor is picking up the key, would i be able to unplug the other cable and see if i can use a bit of wire to hot wire it HAHA. also the mileage still works and when van goes into eco mode battery light comes on and goes off when opening doors.

Hi..I have had starters fail in a way that draws lots of current from the battery..enough to stop the car....but as the battery recovers a bit ,there is enough to power small items.You can try and energise your starter by using a wire from the battery to the small terminal on the starter and see what happens(not the big thick wire)to eliminate that.

good new i have found the problem and it was fuse 11 in the glove box. old fuses looks ok, but thought i would change it as it was the Low current ignition switch not thinking it would do anything and dash lights up and van starts. thanks for all the help.
