car repairs


Question by  morrisja (1)

I took my car to the shop and they looked at fuses, now my horn doesn't work and air bag light on--what should I do?

This is not an easy question, as several reasons are possible. I assume the problem is related to the fuse situation. Perhaps fuses were removed during the inspection process and were not replaced. Another possibliliy is that the fuses were tested for electrical conductivity and that excess current applied during the process "blew" some of the fuses.

It sounds like they didnt put a fuse or two back. Possible they blew one of them. Or they may have obstructed an important wire. You should bring it to a reliable mechanic.

Since the electrical system was most likely shut off for the evaluation of the fuses then their is a very good chance that something the mechanic did affected these electrical parts. I would demand a refund of your costs and go to new shop.

Call the shop and let them know. Sometimes fixing one thing breaks another and they will likely fix the problem once you call it to their attention. However, if they do not, call your local better business bureau and also write a letter. Send a copy of the letter to the business and the state Attorney General's office.
