Wont start, wont crank, and blowers dont work.

wont start symptoms;

Key turned to ignition;

There is a single clicking sound from either the engine compartment or inside the dash.

The airbag, ABS, oil, batt lights come on as normal, but

NO Yellow security light comes on for the immobiliser (usually it'l come on for a few seconds and then turn off).

NO Blower works - theres power to turn it from feet to screen etc, but no blower power on any level (usually it blows with ignition on until you start it).

Electric windows work ok.

Key turned to start;

Nothing happens, except;

The fuel complight dies and the heater control light dies.

Once the key is released back to ignition the above lights come back on.

Is this a blow fuse/fuses/relays etc?

What could i be checking to single things out etc?

Sounds like the battery is dead, honestly. Take the cables off and clean them thoroughly, and try a boost.

I always manage to buy absolute junk and putting tons of $$$ in it. No such thing as a good deal.
