2001 Tiburon no power at all

Asked by Apr 14, 2017 at 12:02 PM about the 2001 Hyundai Tiburon FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I just replaced my manual trans and when I was
hooking everything up I went to go attach my
battery connections. I had the body ground hooked
up and went to go attach the engine ground to the
negative post, but it slipped and accidentally arced
on the positive post. I had smoke coming from the
arc and back of my engine. Car has no power at all.

The dome light doesn't come on when the door is
opened. I know all my connections are good and
my ground for the starter is attached to the trans.
What could my issue be? I'm hoping it's a relay or a
fuse, not that I fried an ECM. But that being said.
The car would still have power right?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Did you check battery cables, if it is fried?

Battery cables are fine. I probed every three inches of wire to see if it frayed internally. But i have 12.5v on either side. Positive and ground when hooked up pos neg and neg pos

check for a fusible link in the engine compartment relay box it should be a pink wire with a 30 amp rating
