more likely that for one the battery needs charged after a month of sitting there or youve blown fuses which means going through all the fuses behind the glovebox and in the engine bay one by one to see if any are blown

i have checked fusses non blown but 3 missing no; 39-57-62 ill give the battery a charge over night and see wot happen's

try the relays and fuses under the bonnet especially the large fuses

When you turn the ignition on, what does the pats light do? Flash fast, go solid(on), or no response?
If it flashes fast, leave it like that for over 1 min, If it goes solid after 1 min, it should then start.
If it dosnt go solid, it will probably flash up a code. count the flashes ie.. 2 flashes then 3 flashes means code 23.
Either way let us know.
