After i replaced the car battery, the radio and the car alarm are not working all of a sudden. I also had the brakes worked in the last few days and I wonder if the service people did something that messed these things up. Any ideas welcome.

I would check every single fuse in the car. Blown fuses can cause weird issues like this. While the initial issue with the mechanic does sound like an alarm problem....the rest does not unless the shop that installed it really butchered the job.
you have something draining the battery. you will need to find out were the drain is coming from. could be the alarm /radio/ external alarm module. you will need to find what is doing it. wipe motor could have a a short but that should not affect battery when the car is locked up.
Most all aftermarket radios have their own fuse next to the wiring harness plug. Depending on the brand, it may only take a few minutes to pull the radio out of it's sleeve to check for the fuse. Usually, you can pop off the trim ring to see what you are working with.
hi, this might be stupid of me, but, if you have disconected the car battery, it may need reseting of the alarm system imobilizer or the battery in the key is dead (the key has a small battery to send a signal to the (imobilizer, door locks and alarm), if the battery is dead, needs replacing and reseting of the car electrical system. change battery in the key or fob first note polarity wich way the battery fits + - then take the ((negative feed off the car battery and dag (put the negative on and off ) it a few times until the alarm sounds) you will need to be quick to keep a connection or you will need to do this again. hope this has helped gerry
please explain what year a X registration vehicle is ,as i have no idea ,last one i remember was a T 1978 .Now i think that this alarm fob might need re-programming into the vehicle where you swing on the aerial whilst holding the key fob in teeth and pressing the brake and the FM button on the radio at the same time ,When my all data books arrive next week i might be able to help but yes i have had this problem before and yes we do have these vehicles here in spain but mainly diesels ,now last time it happened when a customer changed the batterys i held the button down on the fob then turned the ignition on and it all sort of bleeped and started working ,but perhaps an american person with more experiance than myself might know how to do it correctly ,Now if you ask me about a humber hawk or a morris minor??
