Saturn jumper cables hooked up backwards


Try charging the battery more. Even though your lights may come one, starting a vehicle requires massive amounts of amperage from the batter. It's possible that your jumper cables aren't a thick enough guage to supply enough power as well. Sometimes the vehicle you're jumping from might not have enough power to support your vehicle's starting power requirements.

2001 Mazda protege radio and lights in car not working after jumper cable s were hooked up backwards


Connecting jumper cables the wrong wat around most likely has damaged electronic components such as a radio and computer.
Check the fuse box and replace any blown fuses.
If you still have problems then get an auto electrician to fix your car.

I accidentally hooked up jumper cables backwards when I was trying to jump start my 97 Ford Escort. Needless to say, it was not good. It started to spark and caught on fire. I was eventually able to get it...


I bet you saw some dramatic sparks when you hooked the jumpers up backwards!
The good news is that if your ignition switch was turned to the "off" position when this happened, the fix may be simpler and cheaper than you think. This car has one or more "fusible links" in its primary wiring. They may look like a thick piece of wire, but they act as super-fuses in the the case of large-scale power shorts and the like. Fusible links are typically in-line, so you won't see them in either your under-hood or under-dash fuse boxes. If you're lucky, you blew a fusible link right off the bat, saving the rest of your electrical system from serious harm.
If your ignition was turned to the "on" position when the battery was hooked up backwards, you have a more serious risk that you damaged your on-board computer. However, even if your computer were fried, your dome light, your hazard blinkers, and probably your headlights and turn signals (different circuit than the hazard lights, believe it or not, even though it's to the same bulbs) would continue to operate.
I'm going to recommend that you should check for one or more blown fusible links. Good luck!
