Well thats very bad and unless you are an electritian then i would reccomend taking it to a dealer because you most likely burned up some if not most of the wiring under the hood. you may not be able to see it but its there. if thats not the case then it could have just blown a fuse or relay. those are simple and can be done cheaper if you want to check those first

I have changed fuel pump, filter, seems to be getting gas, turns over but wont start

With the ignition key off, remove one of the spark plug wires and insert a phillips head screwdriver into the wire cap. Place the metal part of the screwdriver near, but not touching, a metal part of the engine that is grounded (DO NOT touch the metal on the screwdriver with your hand!), then have someone crank the engine while you look for a spark between ground and the screwdriver. If no spark then suspect an ignition problem.

Replaced shifter in 2002 s55 amg and now car wont start?

Check all wires around your replacement piece to insure that nothing came loose or is grounding out, it may have also overloaded a fuse if one wire is touching another, so maybe check fuses if nothing else.

1999 Mazda millenia Electrical issues

the first thing to do is to remove the wires your sister conected, tape them seperately, these wires are power and ground wires and power the light in the visor mirror , they can not touch, so make sure they are apart and not touching any metal surface, tape them, one at a time.

there must be a blown fuse, did you check all the fuse boxes? there is one inside and one under the hood. start with this .

03 ion lowbeams wont work highbeams do have

The dark blue wire is the ground wire for the low beams and your pink is the ground for the high beams.

When you touch that wire to ground the lights should come on. If not there is a short/break in the wire somewhere

Double check your pink wire to confirm that it is supposed to be a ground signal.
