Default XJR1300 Blown main fuse

Weird one

Rode home form work last night fine, stopped engine with Kill switch (needed light to maneuver in drive). Wheeled it out of garage this morning and nothing, thought battery must have gone flat somehow so put on a set of jump leads, still nothing, checked fuses and main 30A blown, replaced, still nothing but did not immediately reblow - had to leave at that point to get a train to work

Going to open light this evening and check all wires and connections but am a bit confused that it hasn't reblown the fuse but I have no power anywhere - any thoughts/hints on where to start if nothing obvious in the headlight ?

Its so hard to diagnose faults at a distance but one possible explanation is you have two faults the first caused total loss of electrics such as battery failure.

Then the fuse blew when you used jump leads.

Hope that helps

After much hunting it was simple (I think) somehow after 3 years a battery terminal was a bit loose - think zero electrics was no circuit and then i pushed it on when using jump leads popping fuse
