No power at all. Only head lights work

Wife asked someone to jump start 97 millenia they reversed the leads and smoke appeared. now the car has zero power no dash lights, door lights, power seats, and locks, gas cap, trunk all dead. Only the head lights work. There is a blown fuse under hood near battery. It says fan fuse. all other fuses are gooin this fuse box, and under dash. Is ther a master fuse that could be bad. I cant even get it to shift into nutral so I can get it towed. brake lights are not on either.

This might sound stupid but check to make sure the terminals are attached tight so they are making a good connection. This happened once on my truck because the ground cable came loose somehow

White smoke from buick tailpipes, wont start

I had the same problem with my '87 Buick LeSabre 2 years ago. But it didn't seem to fit right, the car was running fine up until it just didn't. I had 3 professional mechanics swear it was a blown head gasket. I researched thoroughly and found out this particular engine make has a DEFECTIVE upper intake manifold which can break down and cause coolant to leak into oil, simulating a blown head gasket. The NHTSA had issued a recal on SEVERAL GM cars with this engine, EXCEPT for the '97. I filed a complaint with the ODI and as of today it is now COVERED as a "Defect & Recall". NHTSA ID number 96V116000. This MAY be your problem if it is NOT the "usual" blown head gasket. Hope this helps.

Reverse lights dont work

First of all if the car will start without the clutch depressed then you have a bad clutch safety switch which may lead to light malfunction, but highly unlikely. You may also have a bad reverse/neutral safety switch which is generally on the side of the transmission. GOOD LUCK!!!

97 mazda millenia 2.5l

Ther are only two things that cause this, one is loss of fuel pressure, i.e. defective fuel pump or fuel pump circuit, #2 is loss of spark, this could be a defective ignition module or crank shaft position sensor, do you have any trouble codes, or have you tested that?
