Customer Question
I have a 1999...

I have a 1999 sts seville that won't start. I turned the key nothing doesn't even click. I replaced the battery. The dash came on the radio won't shut off the flashers came on wouldn't go off radio won't turn off. no warning ot anything prior to this.

Mechanic's Assistant: Can you turn the steering wheel at all? And what about the key? Is it worn or damaged?

The key is fine not worn or damaged

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Seville yourself? What have you tried so far?

I installed a new battery

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I checked all the fuses nothing is blown
