As described, broken into the car and they’ve been after taking it, not the property inside it. (Left tools, computers, etc.)
I’ve attached a photo of fusebox, if anyone can spot anything out of place?
Stupid question I know, but I’m a little bit miffed at the minute!  >:(

The large red wire was pulled apart from that joint onto the black from what I can gather? I may be wrong, but they fit together that way. 🤷‍♂️

Stressed is beyond the word! No alarm went off or anything! Bloody cars!

It sounds like they might be morons who thought they would be technical and "hot wire" the car by ripping the fuse box apart? It is surprising how little some people know about cars but to be fair the education system in this country isn't very good these days. A bit like bank robbers who try and push the door to get out and try and kick and punch it until the USA cops arrive and then open the door just by opening it in the opposite direction. It is a shame there aren't some car clubs that they could get involved in.

I am happy to help you with all your questions. I am not a qualified mechanic but seem to be better at fixing my car than even the most experienced garages.

I have lots of friends here and very much enjoy talking with you all.

So sorry to hear that! how did they get into the car? Didi they break the glass? To me, apart from the thick red wire that needs to go back into the single pin connector 'P1', I can't see other things wrong or missing.

The red wire as said above doesn't go into whatever that black wire is (not seeing that on mine, so suspect it may be something thats been added?)

Photo of mine to show where the red wire should be just in case you haven't already found that is attached

Thanks Brian;
I figured that out like an hour ago when I got in from work and started just replacing fuses.  :(

Nowts sacred for people anymore either;
No forced entry either, so I’m assuming they’ve used a universal key off the interwebs and that’s it.
They’ve not took anything at all.

Had ring pulls in the ignition barrel though, so god knows.

I'm surprised you say the alarm didn't go off though - mine has gone off when i left the rear popout windows open when it was slightly windy

Mine went off once and the horn kept going honk honk honk, honk honk honk, honk honk honk. I disabled the horn on my Ford Focus because it kept going off and nobody pays any attention. Thankfully my cars don’t look very good so it’s low risk of a break in. But the Alhamb is a luxurious car, so comfy and so many features.
