My battery went dead and had to jump start the van, however the person helping me crossed the jumper wires. After correctly jumping the van everything works except my radio. There isn't a blown fuse and everything else seems to be working correctly. What should I look for or does the radio have to be replaced? Thanks for your help and suggestions.

hot wire starter you can short out ignition switch and wiring. to jump starter ignition switch start postion.you have to run 10 gauge jumper wire from the starter solenoid positive battery terminal to starter switch or S terminal on starter solenoid this procedure take two people but better remove starter replace starter solenoid. trying jumping off starter on camaro would be dangerous you have jack up car to get to starter and wiring person laying under car hot wiring starter while other person hold ignition start position put person under car in deadly position just remove starter have auto parts check it out first replace starter or solenoid if either bad. easier hot wire starter if starter under hood like my 1977 vega monza had starter at top could take long screw driver jump starter off.on the four cylinders engines back in the 70s. camaro starter under car dangerous trying to hot wire not a good idea.
Pull another car or battery to front of car ,,and get the set of jumper wires (RED/BLACK) Red lead goes to Poss term (the biggest one) on both cars ..
Then the black lead goes to the earth side of battery
When started let engine run for 2 minutes and then remove the Black lead first on both cars then the Red lead,then let it run for about another 6 minutes or take it for a drive ,,,but connect the leads around the correct way to batterys......
