First step - clean the battery terminals and cable ends. I would take the battery out and have it charged and tested. Sometimes batteries are so dead you can't jump start the car.

The battery was fine until the power surge from jumper cables touching...


Try taking the battery to an auto parts store and have them charge and test it. They usually will do this for free.


Check the main fuse,s,more than likely blowed one.
