Customer Question

hello, I am having trouble with my 1999 cadallic deville. i was changing the thermostat on it after my car over heated I stupidly did not drain the coolant tank be for I changed it and got some on the abs box under it. While working on taking out the thermostat I had the lights on and the door open with the music on in the car. all of the sudden the lights flickerd and all of the relays clicked on and off and the power went off in the car I tried to turn it back on but I only got a orange security light blinking and nothing else no power anywhere then I tried to do it again and got nothing not even the security light that was blinking. the battery is a newer battery I got last year and is charged I am at a loss on what to do to fix it. I've checked all of the fuses and relays and they all still work not sure where to go from here.
JA: My old Jeep sounds like a steam radiator sometimes. It must be old age. The Mechanic will know what your noise means and what to do about it. Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: yes
JA: Great! What have you tried so far?
Customer: checked the fuses and relays and most of the grounds
JA: Is there anything else the Mechanic should be aware of about your car?
Customer: no
JA: Our top Mechanic is ready to take your case. Just pay the $5 fully refundable deposit and I'll fill the Mechanic in on everything we've discussed. You can go back and forth with the Mechanic until you're 100% satisfied. We guarantee it.
