You may have caused some serious electrical problems, this could get very costly. You can try disconnecting the battery cables from the battery and then hold them together for 5 mins to reset everything. Chances are you have corrupted the computers though.

My 2001 bmw 325i doesn't have power no light no radio and the interior lights are all off


Sounds like you have a dead battery. Try recharging the battery or get someone with jumper cables to give you a jump. If your battery dies again after driving for at least an hour you likely need a new battery. If the battery in the car is the original, it's time to replace it anyway.

My 1990 mercury grand marquis was boosted wrong


Might need to check the main circuits for a blown fuse or fuseable link.
There is a fuse wire between the alternator and battery.

You may have damaged the vehicle's ECU, or electrical circuits. Check all fuses and main fuses. Crossing the jumper leads can have very serious consequences.

I helped a friend recently who had an issue with a dead battery. she had a dead battery and the security at the place tried to jump her and I believe they crossed the cables. When I got there the battery...


if the jumper leads were crossed it means that there would be 24 volts going into the system instead of 12 volts, you are very lucky that the car still starts as this action usually causes major damage to the electronic parts of the vehicle so I don' think that they were crossed but it has caused some sort of problem but I'm not sure where,it maybe best to take the vehicle to an auto electrician & have the problem fixed.....hope this helps.....cheers.
