Hi,
Have just got back from a 20 mile trip in the rain and parked up...engine off, all ok. I then decided to move the van forward a bit and stuck the key in, turned it and sparks flew down from under the bonnet. I tried it again and now the engine won't turn, just a clicking noise. Has anybody got any ideas what could have happened or caused this?
Peugeot Boxer 2.0 Diesel Autosleeper Symbol 2004, 23,000 miles.

HELP PLEASE!

UPDATE

I managed to start engine only after 'rocking' the van in first gear and spraying the earth strap connections with wd40. I again then tried to start it but again sparks and 'nothing'. Do I presume it's the strap?

Hi.
First of all make sure your battery terminals are clean and tight. Then follow all thick cables from battery back to see if they are all tight and make good conection on other end. THis should hopefully pin point where fault lies.
