Question type: Maintenance & Repair

ever issues I got a new battery about 3
weeks ago car was running fine I drove to
pick my son up from school was gone for
about 10 min and now my car won’t start no
lights where left on and I don’t know what
could be the problem

Even if the starter works, it might not be turning fast enough to start the engine, so it could be the battery. Are all the connections clean & tight. Might be a defective starter motor/solenoid, regulator, relay, neutral safety switch, or even the ignition switch. Might be a camshaft or crankshaft sensor. If you see a security light on the dash display, the engine might be immobilized..... Beyond that, your car might have an ignition or fuel pump problem. You're either not getting proper fuel or spark. Really could be either. Without seeing the car, it's not possible to say what the exact problem is. Get the car back to the mechanic to diagnose.
