Make sure all lights and chargers are off or unplugged. Check to make sure the alternator is working properly and charging the battery when the car is running. After that you need to make sure you have good battery connections. Battery cable can go bad.
Sounds like on your first attempt to jump start the car the positive and negative cables were reversed blowing your main fuse. Your interior lights are usually controlled by a switch next to your speedometer or the dashboard. If the switch does not bring the lights/gauges back then it is possible that something else shorted and the vehicle would need to be taken in for service.
The wiper could have a problem on fuse and the switch, check that!
The reverse light could be the bulb connection, fuse, and the reverse switch that is located on ur transmission( connection wire could have been disconnected or the switch malfunction ).
No! The service light will not and cannot be activated by these problems!
Go to ur favorite electrical technician and have him check on it!
Thanks for asking FiXYa!
first....be sure the fuse is the right ampage. second...if the ampage is correct, and it still blows, do the following. Disconnect the ground-side of your battery. Attached test lamp to ground-side of battery. Take probe end of test lamp and touch anypart of the motor body frame. If the test lamp (DOES NOT LIGHT UP), you have an electrical short. Recommend OBD (On-board Diagnostic) analysis test.
using a test light with all doors closed everything in the car off; disconnect your black battery cable then: connect a test light between the battery post you just removed the cable from and the cable you removed; the light should light. this is your short (leak) then remove fuses until you find the fuse that causes the light to go off your problem is in that circuit.
Check your fuses for wipers and lights. If good use a volt meter and check power at the fuse. If your wipers, radio and dash lights worked before you changed the nuetral safety switch I would retrace my steps and make sure I didn't leave something disconnected. It happens a lot. Let me know what you find.
