Reversing polarity at the battery is a very bad thing and can cause a host of unpredictable problems. You are lucky that you didn't fry the alternator diodes (the battery is charging, I hope). Each of the problems you describe will have to be treated separately. 1. try replacing the turn signal fuse and flasher unit. 2. fuel gauge has a delicate resistor... probably the easiest fix is to replace the instrument cluster. 3. Heater blower fan has a resistor pack for different fan speeds, this may be replaceable, otherwise a new blower assembly may be the best way to fix it. Hope this helps

Your brake light switch is eith stuck or gone bad. It is located on the brake pedal and you can try to jiggle it to see if it will free itself and turn the lights off or you will need to replace it. It's a pretty easy job and relatively inexpensive. Let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!

Pull the fuses and check the socket for power on the things that don't work. If there is no power at the fuse box there is a good change the stater igintion switch is toast. it is located on top of the steering colunm under the dash.usally less then 20 bucks All that you mentioned get power from this switch that goes to the fuse panel when you turn the key on

I suspect a bad multi function switch located in the left hand side of the steering column. This switch controls your high/low beams/wiper delay/windshield washer/turn signals and hazards.
