Check the mains fuse box, usually when this happens it blows a main fuse, and it will be obviously blown.


There should be a fuse somewhere to protect the battery, you need to find it and replace.


check all the fuses and fusible links , under the hood and anywhere else , , scan for codes even if the light ain't on , you may have toasted the computer ,, mixing up batt polarity is a big no - no


Check the ALT. fuse under hood driver side you need a 12 VOLT test light to check it. This is usually a bolt in fuse. Get back with results.


Main under the hood black box has the big breaker fuse, looks like a flat piece of metal about two inches long, thinner in the middle (well yours will be missing the center section) but thats it.


Patcrazy.....did you ever resolve the issue with this vehicle?
