Question about 1995 Buick Regal
My 95 Lesabre was just at the mechanic last week to get a new brake line. When I picked it up it would not start the first time I put it in the ignition. I tried again a few seconds later and it was fine. I drove it to my driveway and now when I try to start it, it's dead. My mechanic is very reliable and trustworthy, so I have no idea what's going on. Not even my lights will turn on and my electric locks don't work either. My battery was replaced last August. Is this an ignition switch problem? How much will it cost to fix?
The locks don't go thru the ignition switch. Check the battery connections for corrosion or looseness.

SOURCE: Won't start, no lights, nothing.
If you need to do some testing yourself, first clean both battery terminals where they contact the battery post, Use a volt meter to check battery voltage (should have 12v or better) Terminals may just be dirty and I don't know anyone that removes a battery cable to change a brake line. Therefore the shop likely is coming with the attitude of the typical customer complaint that "you just fixed my tire and now the radio dosen't work" A good shop corrects the problem and lives with it as long as it's not something big. Others use this as a starting point for an argument (those guys usually don't last long).
Chances are its what I said in which case just roll with it...it's no ones fault.
