Are you a current or recent car shopper who bought an EV and then installed solar – or who had solar already, making the decision to go electric easier?
Are you a recent EV buyer (past 3 months) as a result of manufacturer incentives and dealer discounts on these vehicles, including year-end deals? Were you convinced to buy an EV after finding a good end-of-year deal, or due to uncertainty around which EVs will no longer qualify for full/partial EV tax credits in 2024?

My 2003 1.8 Nissan Sentra GXE was shorted it out by accident, what can do to start it again?

By accident my torque wrench touched the alternator over the red rubber which covers the alternator nut. I heard a singular crack. After I completed the torque routine, I tried to start it, but it just crank. I noticed the instrument panel (dashboard) was not lit. The car's electrical locking system was not working. I used my beeper but, it was not working. It would close or open the doors. I already checked the ground contacts and clean them, except the one that is no accessible because I will have to remove the entire passenger panel. Can you help, please?
