You probably blew a main fuse or circuit breaker. I believe your fuse box is on the driver side under the hood. Check your owners manual for fuse I.D. Then check the main fuses.

SOURCE: Toyota camry 2001emission not ready (Readiness == Fail )

The system has to complete a certain number of drive cycles to complete the system readiness function, this is a mixture of stop and go, highway and idling, I admit it should have cleared by now, but try to do a mixture of driving, just highway won't do it, it should complete soon, if it doesn't then there is a problem that will have to be diagnosed.

SOURCE: Car is Dead

Sorry to hear of the awful incident.
I can't understand how your friend managed to hook up the jumper leads the wrong way without arcing or sparks flying off the leads as connection was made?
Are you sure You didn't try boosting it to 24Volts? to get away?
If so then as the ignition was turned on all the bulbs will have blown and possibly the burning was the Alternator frying.
If Not and only a very brief attempt was made then all may not be lost (Hopefully)
Before this incident are you sure the battery was flat and Not a faulty starter motor? if it was then the connection the wrong way will possibly have only blown the bulbs as I feel the problem lies with your starter.
When trying to crank the engine with a poor/low charge in the battery, Volts go down Amps go up cooking the wires in the starter making it feel/look like a flat battery afterwards even with a fully charged battery installed.
Firstly I would examine all ignition circuitry for cooked wires, then check all bulbs (Replace blown/fused) If the wiring isn't too bad then
I would replace the starter, install a fully charged battery, (Make sure you flash the positive lead before connecting properley to see if direct shorting isn't taking place) then try again.
If you have no luck then come back to me for more suggestions, I'll pop off to my Toyota Buddie and see if I can't scare up a wiring diagram.
Good Luck!
You can do this,

Check your main relays in the fuse box under the hood, hopefully its blown one or a few of them before it did real damage to your wiring.

recharge battery, it must be dead

SOURCE: I have a 1995 Toyota Avalon XLS. Something keeps

So you have a parasitic power drain when the system is off. You can narrow the fault quite quickly if you have access to an ammeter (multimeter set to DC current). connect the ammeter in series between the battery negative terminal and its cable. Note the power consumption when everything is off. Remove and return each fuse in turn and each time note the current change. Check them all just to be thorough. There will be one circuit fuse that will be responsible for the majority of the current draw. It is this circuit that needs to be examined for a short or maybe a light being left on (glove compartment and trunk courtesy lights are the usual culprits). It maybe that you cannot spare the time immediately to resolve the issue so in the mean time leave this fuse out and reconnect the battery, which should now hold its charge. Good luck

Low power on toyota 2007 camry. Do I need to reset by reinstalling the new battery?

The fuse and relay box is located in the engine bay area. Please lift up the cover by pressing front and rear locks, and find the ECTS fuse (10 Amp). Location and diagram of the fuse is printed underside the cover. Remove the fuse, check the fusible link. Replace it with the same rating, if it is blown.
After replacing the fuse, remove the EFI fuse in the same relay box or remove the battery terminal for 10 Sec.
Fix the fuse back to its place or reconnect the battery terminal.
Start the car. It should now perform well.
If the problem persists, retrieve the error code and put it here.
Hope that works.

Air bag reset 1995 toyota camry

I haven't had to try this but here is a procedure for resetting the airbag after the battery was disconnected

"How do you reset the airbag warning light in a '94 Camry?

A: Clearing the warning light in '92-'96 Camrys by the following procedure:
In the DLC1 or DCL2 (data link connector under the hood, see attached diagram):
Use two short wires, one wire at terminal TC and a different wire at terminal AB:
With the ignition key ON - wait 6 seconds, then:
Ground terminal TC to good body ground for one second
Then ground terminal AB for one second
Then TC one second
Then AB one second
Then ground TC until the light blinks.
Make sure the interval between grounding the terminals is not more than 2 secs.
Remove the ground wires.

Be very careful to only use the correct terminals.

I have a 1995 camry 220sei auto and the battery runs down every night. have to take off terminal every night or car wont elect cant solve problem

Your vehicle is exhibiting a parasitic draw on the battery. Something such as a light inside the glove compartment is staying on when the keys are taken from the ignition. To deduce the root cause of the problem using a 12 volt test light, disconnect the negative battery terminal and ground test light to battery terminal post and probe the loose cable end. This should be done with the keys removed from the ignition and all known electrical loads off. If the draw exists your test light should illuminate under these conditions. Next go about the car and search for the source of the draw. Once you have identified and eliminated the draw your test light should stay off.

My 96 camry doesnt turn on at all. when i turn the ignition key nothing happens. the radio doesnt turn on and the lights also. it cant be my battery cause i just recently changed it. please help.

Check the battery again, it can either be loose or corroded terminals, a dud battery, or something is draining the battery. The battery voltage should be between 11.5 and 14.4 volts. Then check your connections on the engine and in the fusebox

No electrical power after replacing battery

Well, your initial problem sounds like a bad starter motor and now somehow there is another problem.
First, make sure the battery shows 12v with a volt meter. If its ok thenit may be that you accidentally hooked the battery up backwards...even for a second, it would have blown out a main fuse. Notice any sparks when you installed the battery? Or, did you try to jump it with another car and put the cables on wrong? If no too all this the check the smaller wires on the positive battery end to make sure none broke.
The main fuses are located in the relay/fuse box near the battery.
Hope this helps.
