Reversing polarity can cause all sorts of damage. You probably will need to have it towed to the mechanic of your choice.




check your fuses it likely blew more then a few. hopefully it did not short out any relays and or computers. you may want to start on what does work and what doesn;t and work your way from there. Start pulling fuses and you are likely going to have to pull and check every single one. *do them one at a time replacing them as you go*
