Check battery connections, Jump start the car, check fuses. Then pull Codes from computer if that don't work.

You must have blown a major fuse? Or tripped a breaker? Normally the headlights come right off the battery as does the starter via a relay. Check all your fuses and look for a melted fusible link too. Should be something fairly obvious?

If you did not unlock the car before starting the repair you may have tripped the security system. Just a thought. HTH. -Jim
