Car not starting

Asked by Jul 09, 2018 at 02:12 PM about the 2013 Mazda MAZDA3

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The battery was put in backwards and blew the
main fuse to the battery and the 80 amp fuse, we
replaced the fuses and everything but the car still
won’t crank power is there for lights and stuff but I
radio and  it just won’t start. Just like a clicking
sound. We were going to jump it and see if that
helps but I don’t want to cause even worse issues if
that’s the wrong thing to do.

What engine size


Look in this fuse box too.... mainly at fuse 57


And 50




That 80 amp fuse went to your power steering
