First, I hope you diluted the battery acid with a little water. Most batteries create explosvie gas (hydrogen). If it isn't vented well, the gas could build up and a spark from even a dirty terminal can set off the gas. Are you saying that you've determined that Chevy Equinox cars are prone to explode their batteries? A sealed battery, such as the Optima, releases no vapors. Such a battery would probably solve your problem.

Turned key heard pop interior light flashed car went dead think battery exploded can it mess up other things in car


Yes it will the acid from the battery will eat stuff. Take baking soda and water mix and poor it where the acid went. this will neutralize the acid. 1 box of baking soda per 5 gallons of water or so. do this as soon as you can and you wont have a problem.
