After my car broke down n quit starting, someone replaced my starter. Now nothing will work at all! No lights inside, nothing. Any ideas why? Thank you!!

Sounds like either there's a wire not hooked up at the starter or, if he didn't disconnect the negative (-) battery cable before starting the repair, the main fuse in the underhood fuse box is blown. If you have an underhood fuse box you're looking for a large "MAXI" style fuse with 100 stamped on it. This will be the main fuse for the car. When it blows, everything is dead. Same deal with the wiring at the starter. If something is not hooked up. HTH. -Jim
