Q: Vehicle had sudden and complete loss of power

asked by on

Vehicle had a new battery placed by dealership 1 month ago. Doing well. This rainy evening, as I was loading the vehicle. All electronics seemed to be working, lights were on, suddenly all the lights went out after a minute of loading . I tried to start the car and nothing happened when I put the key in the ignition or when I turned the key. None of the electronics are working. The car is completely dead. Nothing smells burnt. A few dashboard lights flickered for a minute but nothing else. Is the battery dead again or is something wrong with the computer or relay? Thanks
