Hi. after lying in my driveway for a year with a flat battery, I have tried to jump-start the my R but although lights etc come on, there is NOTHING happening under the bonnet. I assume that the 'brain' needs re-programmed. Is there some way of re-setting the electronics without plugging in a computer? thanks in anticipation.

You're trying to jumpstart a battery that has been dead for over a year? That battery is long gone. Pick up a new battery. Any battery that has been discharged for a while won't hold a charge anymore

^ This, assuming the car ran when you parked it and the gas isn't completely stale this should be all it takes to start it. A half dead battery can turn on the idiot lights but its not going to be enough to turn the engine over and still have enough power to run the ECU.
