Hi Chris, sounds like the fuse for the starter motor isn't in place or has blown. I take it he ignition comes on ok but just no start? That woukd also explain why jump leads have no effect.  Try bump starting it, if it fires it would also point to a start circuit fault.

Is the car auto or manual?

Changing over fuse box and alternator lead does not cause a problem normally so would suggest the problem may have occurred prior to changing fuse box and lead or just may be coincidence that you now have a starter problem.
Check fuse 25 in the central fuse box first if that's OK I would check power supply (solenoid wire) to starter,that should be live when ignition key is in the start position.

Is the battery definitely ok? If it's really discharged (which it could be if the alternator charging cable got hot enough to melt- this would have meant the battery wasn't being charged properly, maybe for quite some time before the failure) then possibly even trying to jump start it wouldn't have worked. If relays are clicking and the climate control panel flashing then it sounds to me like there may not be enough juice in the battery to power the starter.

Clicking  relays is usually a sign of low battery voltage can you check your battery voltage and when attempting to start.

Can you tell us Battery voltage With;
1. Nothing switched on
2. Ignition switched on
3. Starter position.

Then at starter motor check voltage on red and black solenoid lead when key is in the starter position.

Also, when you changed the fusebox (battery junction box) and alternator charging cable, did you check the condition of the cable that sits below it in the battery junction box? This cable supplies the main interior fusebox and can also be affected by corrosion/overheating.

So some bright spark has said an ECU is stopping the starter motor operating? wrong there are no ECU's in the starter circuit.
A diagnostic reader will give a numbered code with a short description, there are several ECU's on the car which one is it referring to.

Also whatever code was present are not time stamped so it could be an old fault code that's not relevant now.

You also haven't answered my previous question about battery voltage

The thanks is much appreciated but we would be more interested to know what the fix to your problem was!!
As for the booster heater are you saying the heater is working but seems to be running all the time the engine is running? or are you saying the combustion fan only is running all the time?

Removing fuse 12 will disable the heater.
The heater would normally kick in at temperatures below 10degs C does the little exhaust get hot, if so then it sounds like it's working OK

The heater is supplied with a permanent 12volt supply from fuse 12 to pin 1 on the heater multiplug but the heater requires an engine run signal to function, that means a 12volts supply to pin 7 on the heaters multiplug, this is fed from fuse 3.
When you switch the engine off you lose the engine run signal and the heater should shut down.

You haven't by any chance got the independent heating option (timer control panel by interior mirror)

Was the heater working before the fuse box problem?
