    astravan won't start

    hi,
    my m reg 1.7td astravan wont start.
    for a while the battery was goin flat overnight. i'd charge it and it started ok. so i'd leave it disconnected overnight. no problem.
    now it won't start again. tried jumping it off a diesel tranny but no joy.
    today battery at 12.6. that should b ok i thought. at first attempts starter was trying (like a revving whirring type noise), then it went down to nothing but clicks.
    one or two fuses are loose in their fittings in the fuse box.
    can't find an obvious bad earth.
    anybody got any clues?
    thanks a lot,
    tim
