Question about 2007 Pontiac G5 Gt Coupe
So i was trying to jump my buddies car. Had it hooked up to the positive and grounded out where the manual said (don't like not having both terminal things there) and it didn't work. Went to drive away and noticed that i couldn't switch it from heat to defrost and none of the center consol was functional. I turned the car off hoping that the problem would just reset itself now the car will not turn back on.
This is why it's not a good idea to use jumper cables on a newer car or truck. Those power packs are the preferred way of jump starting a car nowadays. You probably blew out the body control module and power train module in yours with the voltage drop from the dead battery. You'll need to contact your insurance company and a competent mechanic to get this car running again. In the meantime, check the fuses under the hood to make sure none of these are blown. You might get lucky there, but this is serious. The electrical system is expensive to work on in a modern car because of the electronics.
