Electrical issues : Honda Civic Died on freeway

Today a customer was towed in, their Honda died on the freeway coming back from butte college. When the car came in, it acted like it was a dead battery. The lights did not come on when you turned over the key, and the car did nothing when you tried to start it. Oddly, i leaned on horn and all the lights came on.. I then knew I was dealing with a electrical issue. After testing wires and searching around a bit, I found a small broken wire coming off the battery. It was the after market alarms ground. A pretty simple fix. I repaired a broken wire and the car was happy. The entire process took under a hour! In and out the same day. Sometimes we get lucky and everyone wins...
