Yes the battery is fairly new as the old one had been tested having failing plate, I also tried another fully charged battery which is good. Fuses etc are good will not Not even click when key turned. I'm thinking inhibitor switch, crank angle sensor as it seems electrical... I haven't tested the relays or know how to!!
