i would say check all the fuses again, both in passenger compartment and under the hood. plus, the mechanic should be responsible for this issue. it also sounds like you battery is not fully charged. i would also suspect, the starter was changed without disconnecting the battery and something was shorted as he installed the starter. good luck
Your car won't start as in the battery is dead? In other words, the engine does not turn over OR the engine does turn over, but the car does not start?? The alternator has nothing to do with starting the car. The battery starts the car. So is your battery dead? An alternator will not charge a battery that has seen better days. Take the car in (if you can) to autozone or advance auto and have them test the battery.
Change the battery. Newer batteries sometimes go all at once, and are so dead even a jump start won't work. It has happened to me twice. Once you put in the new battery check the alt output with a volt meter should read about 14.5 volts at the battery. If it does problem solved just reset the clock, radio etc.
Which battery did you change? There are two batteries installed on your vehicle. There is a battery in the trunk on the right side which is called the systems battery which supplies power to the electronics of the vehicle and the second battery is under the hood near the bottom of the windshield. The battery under the hood is the starter battery. Check and/or replace that battery and let me know what happens.
Most modern bikes will not start unless the battery is charged. Battery is probably dead, and you rectifier is most likely dead too. change those out with ones known to work and see if that changes it.
Sounds like your battery has one or more dead cells in it. If everythings work and then when you try to start it it won't start it is most likely a dead cell. Before changing batteries, clean the posts shere the cables attach to the battery and tighten grounds attached to motor and battery.
Take the battery out and have it charged up. reinstall it and you should be allright. Your car has discharged it completely, and it will need a recharge to start. The gauge is only measuring voltage, and not the status of charge.
