Right I've been out and the battery is showing 12.45 volts so that appears to be ok. I have tried to start the car using the other key but now I have noticed that on the dash the car display for the doors and the side light display are the only ones lit. Not even the mileometer is showing anything! I dont know if this maybe because I tried to jump the car this morning? The plot is thickening!

Both connections was the battery cover not covering one of the terminals

As should be positive connected to the battery and clip the negative on to metal on the engines

The negative terminal should be blocked off on any within last 15 years

When you measure the battery voltage is the key switch to battery position or turned off or someone trying to start while voltage being measured as I would measure while someone try to start it to show true reading while power is being introduced

It does not appear to be blanked off.  I tested the voltage with no keys in the ignition just as it was sat in the car

You don't do it like that.

 

Positive to positive first, then connect the negative of the good battery to somewhere metal on the dead car for a good earth.  Nothing should be connected to the negative terminal of the dead battery.

To be fair the battery was not dead but I will bare this in mind. I hope this hasn't effected the electrics

OK I think it's the starter. Been out and it was still just clicking. Got someone to turn the key and there were sparks from where the but holds the cable onto the motor and it was sparking and smoking (although I had sprayed wd 40 on) and I hit it with a mallet and it turned over but very slowly but with more smoke coming off the connector.
