OK, it sounds like the battery is dead flat, or just dead. First thing to check is the voltage on the battery - if it is 12 to 13v it might just need recharging, but if it is a lot less it could be due for replacement.
You should be able to get it running by getting it jump started using cables from another car. When you get the engine running again check that no interior lights stay on after you close the door, and that no audio systems or other electrical items have been left on.
If the battery is more than three years old, it is probably just worn out, but if it is a lot newer, come back with more info and I will try to help you further.
I take it you have a "real" key to get you inside so you can open the hood / bonnet?
Hope this helps a bit to start with. D.

Thanks for responding. Frustrated at spending over an hour on the damn internet looking for a simple diagram of what each fuse covered , driving to a parts store, buying a Chiltons repair manual, changing a few fuses that didn't need changing ( ac still blew hot ) I took it back to the repair shop this am and will let them deal with it.
I think I am going to create a diagram and give it away for FREE so idiots like me can change the fuses and get on with more important things in life.
