Battery Cable mixup

Asked by May 12, 2018 at 08:37 AM about the 1994 Ford Mustang GT Coupe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My wife ran her battery dead and decided to jump her car herself, but got the battery cables hooked up wrong. She fried the battery, so we replaced that, but now the windows won't roll up and the car doesn't stay running and is dead again. Is there a specific fuse that she would have blown or do we have more problems ahead?

It is difficult to say without being able to visually check. My neighbor had the same problem, he called a mechanic who tested all the fuses and relays in the relay fuse box under the hood, the entire box had blown and had to be replaced. You can start by checking the fuses and relays one by one, maybe it is just a few that are blown and you won't have to replace the entire fuse box. If you are not sure of what you are doing, it will be better to get a mechanic to avoid more damage. By the way, it was my neighbor's HUSBAND, who crossed the wires.

the windows may each have a module that could have been cooked , pull the panel , get your multi tester and see what's up , they may be pricey
