Dead 2.0D 25 any ideas??

on the way in to work all electrics stopped working i.e no speedo/tacho or lights, indicators lcd display went off too also horn would not work either, so i pulled over turned it off on the key but it kept running (at this point temp guage went thru the roof) so i stalled it. then find out its not overheating, now it wont start not enough juice in battery. Turning the key nothing happens, the alarm starts sounding off whilst investigating (had to pull the wires out of the horn for silence) had immobiliser issues twice but that was making relay noises under the dash, this time however none of that. so i have had jump leads on & nothing also dash/ign lights are flickering when key out. checked fuses all ok checked alternator leads too all ok.

As above broken earth connection most likely to slam panel or to gearbox.

Have you checked the battery voltage is correct?
If when you start the ignition key is not illuminated red light with the battery it is possible that not correct alternator voltage regulator.
