A bit of corrosion between the battery post and the cable clamp.
You un-hooked it, scraping some of crap off in the process, then
re-hooked it, making at least a half-decent connection. Take it
apart again, clean both mating surfaces until they're shiny, and
put it back together.

The repair man is an idiot. (just my opinion)
