As long as you hook your car up first then the car you are jumping your battery from it will not harm the PCM (computer as u call it)

2001 Mazda protege radio and lights in car not working after jumper cable s were hooked up backwards


Connecting jumper cables the wrong wat around most likely has damaged electronic components such as a radio and computer.
Check the fuse box and replace any blown fuses.
If you still have problems then get an auto electrician to fix your car.

2004 dodge neon will not turn over


have you replaced the battery? the car draws it's electricity from the battery, then the alternator replaces the charge to the battery. if the battery is shot and will no longer hold a charge the car will not stay running once you remove the charge as in removing the jumper cables

Is something wrong if the reading is at 18-19? or should it read 14?


If you are talking about charging voltage, 18 or 19 is far too high and can easily damage electrical components and boil the water out of your battery. Most problems like that are the result of a grounded field wire or a bad voltage regulator. Unfortunately, the regulator is part of the computer
(would really like to meet the engineer who thought that one up). Before replacing anything make sure the battery holds a charge and can pass a load test. A bad battery can often cause the charging system to run wild.

Battery needed a charge, it was jumped with cables hooked up wrong, bought new battery but wont start what is problem


if you connected the jumper leads up wrongly you have most likely put 24 volts into the system instead of 12 volts & damaged all of the electric components including the computer, you will need to consult an auto electrician to sort out the problem.....hope this helps.....cheers

Gauges jump w/ acceleration & batt/charging light on


First, have the battery charged and load tested. If it does not pass load test, replace it. An alternator is not made to charge a battery. it's job is to maintain the current state of charge. By driving and attempting to charge it that way you over-worked the alternator and may have damaged it or the regulator. Once the battery is fully charged and in good condition, you will need to check the charging system for proper operation. If the gauge system does not return to normal, it will need further diagnosis to correct it.This isn't a "cure" but rather, what you need to do in order to get back to "square one". With the alternator running "flat out" trying to charge a dead battery it can put out over 15volts, possibly damaging the dash/body control module or computer.

Dead Battery wont even stall should I charge it using jumper cables??


You can jumpstart using jumper cables. Then drive car around to get battery charged back up or get a battery charger and charge battery.

My car was in storage. battery was removed for charging. now car unable to take emissions test. how do you reset computer


computer will re-set itself after approx fifty restarts. To avoid this and loosing radio settings in the future, you can attach a small power supply into the lighter socket (available in many parts stores), or if you are really careful you can use a jumper battery attached to battery leads, but if you accidentally ground + terminal anywhere, you can do a lot of electrical damage!
