My old battery was hooked up with the cables reversed, causing a big spark..I had to replace the 100 amp fuse & put in a new battery...The car wants to turn over, but it just won't, even jumpstarting it doesn't work..What could be the problem??...Alternator??? Or something more serious ???

Re: 95 Camry Won't Start
Lets start with ;; the car wants to turn over;?i dont know what you mean ,is the starter motor turning ?is the engine turning/.lets rule out a couple of things 1 the alternator might be faulty as you say why did you need jump cables in the first place.lets start after the big spark;if ign was switched on at the time of the spark then anything is possible;i would say start looking in and around the battery for burnt or broken wires then move down to wards the starter also feel all plastic wires for signs of overheating replace if necessery.At the starter motor you should have three wires one earth this is black or has no covering the second wire is red with a plastic covering the third is the wire coming from your ign switch check all three wires for burning if you cant find the fault by now then you will have to get it tested by an autoelectrical garage hope this helps you.adrian

there is a main fuse, usually it like big amps like close to 100 amps. depending on the make and model. It will be under the hood. what usual happens is the jumper cables are hooked up with reversed, but that doesn't matter. What matters is a 60 to 100 amp fuse that is blown, if its a older model it will have a bar fuse, new ones are sometimes solder in. The fuse will be blown, you should be able to see it visually. It should say battery main fuse more then likely its a 60, should be a pluck and chuck. Hope this helped Tim
Why was the battery replaced? Theres no reason the the 100 amp fuse to blow unless the alternator is shorted or you hooked up the battery backwards. I think the 100 amp fuse goes to the alternator. If it was hooked up backwards then you may have engine computer damage.
there is some big square fuses in the fuse block under the hood and i would say that one or more of these are blown and if you find that one of these are blown and will not pull out some are bolted in on the side of the fuse block and some of the smaller fuses could also be blown but you need to fix the bigger problem first.look closely at the bigger 40-100 amp fuses first........if i can help any futher let me know.............i hope this was helpful good luck let me know...............
Battery cables off the starter ,starter relay and ignition switch. these are the remaining items in the starting system for no crank and no start.
Get Shop manual and do the appropriate testing for each.
what were the 2 fuses for that you replaced? is there a fuse for the e.c.m.? and what do you mean by battery put on reverse? do you mean you hooked pos. to neg. and neg.to pos? or what? need more info.
