Question about Toyota Corolla
2008 toyota corolla car. the car was dead this morning and had no power with the key turned forward. tried to jump it and sparks kept flying from cables on both ends with no keys turned. then tried car and it started. now no acceleration power at all with check engine light on while it is running...
Sorry to say, sounds as if you had cables hooked up backwards, or possibly just had very poor connection between battery and battery cable terminal. If you may have had jumper cables connected backwards, you may have fried some electrical component. Get someone to read the codes which are making the check engine light come on, and perhaps this will give a clue as to what component is blown. Could have damaged anything from a small sensor to the main computer, in which case I would check with salvage yard for a used unit. The main computer is quite pricey.

Look for a lose connection at the crank shaft sensor. This is a signal needed for obtaining tachometer as well as turning on the fuel pump.
