Question about Cars & Trucks
Hi, I left the cabin light on in the car overnight accidentally. When I went to start the car the next morning the battery was obviously dead. Tried jump starting the car but after trying it once the car wouldn't turn over. It wouldn't even make an attempt to start, no sound at all. Replaced the battery with another fully charged battery and still the same thing. I charged the original battery and replaced it with the same results. Checked the alternator fuse and replaced it. The car turned over first time, however, The control panel display window does not show the time, temperature, radio info etc. The buttons to turn on the radio, heater or blower are not working either. The only button currently working is the rear window demister button which does light up. I also noticed that while the overall mileage is correctly displayed the between services(for want of a better phrase) mileage display underneath has been reset to 0000.0. Thanks for any help
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.
