Question about 2005 Toyota Avalon
After replacing altinator I was charging the battery and crossed the cables. I have replaced main fuse. Car wants to start but stalls when I let go of the key. I noticed my eng light does not come on when the key is in the on position. When I try to start it the light flahes
Worse case scenario: you could have fried the ecu / ecm
anything electrical is effected; had a neighbor's car whole front end wiring to his headlight system got fried/melted together
do you have access to an obd2 scanner and plug it in to check?
in hindsight, this is one of the reasons why calling AAA for a jumpbox is better than having someone hook up jumper cables incorrectly ~ most also will connect the cables directly to the dead car's battery terminals when you're really supposed to connect it to "engine ground"
once you gave it a look over all the electrical wiring and fuses, time bo bite the bullet and take it to the shop ~ sadly
