So here's my problem...
Last weekend the car goes wrong ,RAC conform it's the clutch actuator .. I had this fixed last year in may.. anyway I get the part and get to a garage. The car now won't start and also the diagnostics machine is not recognising the car.
When the car was collected to go to garage the pick up guy was messing around with the gear stick up and down in tears ( not past 2 ) then the line appeared and car wouldn't turn on..

The garage are useless and aren't helping.. any suggestions please

I would check all the fuses and the battery connections.

Do you have any working electrical services - lights, horn, wipers etc?

Does the car turn over or click, click, click or just dead on the turn of the key?
