The fuse can be visually inspected; if it's burnt, that can be clearly seen.

hi thanks for your help, ive sorted it, the battery ended up dying with trying to start it so i bumped it and it fired up, took it for a run and now starts so not really sure what it was. i did get a proper reset tool of a m8 and did that so may have been i did it wrong first time.
