1996 Alarm/electrical problem.

Hopefully someone can help me.

I have a '96 GT Conv that will not start. 130k and driven every day this summer. This is an all of a sudden thing.

When I try to start it, the engine will not turn over, and it seems that the whole electrical system shuts down. No dash lights, horn, headlights, nothing.

If I disconnect the battery, then reconnect it, the lights come back on and everything seems normal. When I turn the key, nothing. The car is completely dead.

The battery is brand new, installed 2 weeks ago, and reads 12V on a meter.

Why is this happening?

Thanks,

Scott
