Question about 2001 Saturn SL
My car was dead and i hooked up jumper cables backwards just for about 5 seconds. There were just a few sparks, nothing was burning or smoking. I disconnected them and put them on correctly and it will not start. Engine still turns over, but just won't start. Checked all of the fuses in the box under the hood except for the big ones along bottom. What else can i check? It doesn't seem like the battery would be bad since the lights on the dash and raio still work.
Best to charge the battery , if the voltage drops below 10 volts when cranking cars with computers will not start, you will now have to check the ignition and fuel systems if ok it should start, now check the battery voltage should be around 14 volts with engine running, if not you may have damaged the alternator and regulator by the wrong jumper lead connection

Try charging the battery more. Even though your lights may come one, starting a vehicle requires massive amounts of amperage from the batter. It's possible that your jumper cables aren't a thick enough guage to supply enough power as well. Sometimes the vehicle you're jumping from might not have enough power to support your vehicle's starting power requirements.

Check security light, if it is flashing , it is set. try this, turn ignition on, don't try to start, let set for ten minutes on. turn off don't take the key out. do this three times ten minutes each, after the third time turn it off, then try to start. This resets the security. If this does not work, then it needs reprogrammed to the new computer you installed. dealer only, about $100.00

Have you checked if your getting spark. You can do this by removing a plug and having someone hit the key for you. watch the spark plug don't touch it or you will get zapped. If you see a strong spark you should be good. Do this for all plugs. Alternatively you can try the crank position sensor this should be mounted between the intake manifold and the starter. Follow the wires to the location and unscrew the sensor.
If that is not the problem and your getting spark and gas to the cylinders. Let me know

check ALL the fuses under the hood in the fuse block and check ALL the fuses inside on the passenger floor behind and under the radio area,,check them ALL and replace any blown ones and see what you got then
