You blew a Fuse!!! THAT'S WHY THEY recomend to put the black negative wire cable to the engine not the battery the ECU could be compromise if you dont, lucky for you its just the fuse or the wheel that makes it brighter and turns your interior courtesy lights on, .good luck.

    and to not make a spark at the hydrogen gas end... boom.
    saw a lady do that last year, across the parking lot, i see her , and yell from afar
    lady you are going to, oops, boom too late.
    connect ground last and not to the battery
    and win, every time.
    to large metal engine part is safe.
    or even a bumper brace. not easy now with plastic over every freakn/ thing.

SOURCE: fan runs all the time when car is on

I did the same thing and had the same problem. I believe I replaced a ten amp fuse in the engine compartment and fixed it. Really pissed me off.

1995 Geo Prizm won't start

I just checked the battery connection and what I thought was a good connection wasn't. It need new connectors on the post. Runs fine after I tightened them more.

Gep prizm wont start

It sounds like a bad ground or something. I'd check your battery terminals and wiring. Also, follow the ground wire from the battery to it's connections. These tend to cause a lot of problems like this.
