A little more info on your rig would help manual or auto? Eng type, it could be your gas is not getting from the tank to the eng how is it parked? Tank down hill? Or eng downhill let's us know :)

2.5 petrol manual 1999, parked on a drive with a slope facing downhill, not even turning over, just beeping even with clutch in and key fob pressed, all clicks as normal just dead yet lots of battery powere for lights and stuff.

How embarrassing, 1st time in 20 years I have had to call the AA out.

Have you tried to jump or bump start it? Just because your battery has enough power to run the lights, radio, etc. does not mean that it has enough to turn over the starter.

Back to basics, gotta carry a lump hammer with me as the stater motor stuck!!!! I thought them days were gone, my fault for going through snow and mud then parking it up for 2 days, DOH!!!!
