    bonnet=hood, yes

    negative = engine block, there normally is a alrge ring bit sticking up at the front of the block.

    that's the plan.


    I've had to do this a few times when my battery has gone flat. And they key was too worn to work the lock.

    a bonnet is a hood.
    a boot is a trunk.
    a deck lid is a trunk-door.
    windscreen is a windsheild
    ...just in case you ever need to know about

    british terminology is brilliant!

    nah I was right!

    Definitions of deck lid on the Web:

    * The term that is used for the trunk lid of a race car.

    * Also known as the trunk lid.

    I'm guessing the sudden loss of power is due to a blown fuse, the fuse box should be either under the hood or somewhere under the dash, i don't have a BMW so i don't know exactly where it is.
    On most cars, they will have a couple of spare fuses on the back of the fuse box lid but fuses blow for a reason, because there is an electrical fault, i suggest you get a breakdown company to have a look at it as they will have an idea of whats wrong.

    Yeah, the sudden loss of power leads me to believe there's a fault in the electrical system, but i can't figure out why. The only thing that i can think of is possible a loose battery ground that sparked and blew a fuse, but i tightened it myself and my carputer isn't even hooked up yet....hmmm...gonna need some expertise on this one.

    How would i find a breakdown company? I'ma google it right now to see if i can find anything.

    EDIT: Didn't find anything..lol....but the AAA guy should be here within the next 15 minutes.
