No radio and time & trip reset when car is off. After jump

I left the lights on and got a jump from a neighbor. Now my radio is not getting power and the time and trip mileage reset every time the car is turned off. The time, trip mileage, mileage and gear, are also not showing up when the car is off, where as they did before. Replaced fuse #42, even though it looked fine. issue persist Is this an alternator issue? The jumper cables did get crossed?

We already know that's not a good idea. It causes havoc blowing as many fuses (which is better) and a real expensive disaster to the ones that were not fuse protected. Your alternator could be malfunctioning from this event and also consider solid state components be in a blown or fried state. Using a simple VOM will test for continuity of fuses and tell you if it's no good and replace the fuse. You've caused a disaster just by x-ing pollarity and by guestimating without the simpliest correct tools you will cause another which will burn a bigger hole in your wallet. The radio code is needed to unlock your radio. It is supplied in your radio owners manual and in a key tag attached to all your keys. For your instrument cluster I would think it's fried inside, rarely it could only be replacing the nicad battery that stores data for mileage info.

your alarm system has been tripped when the battery went dead, to get the information on how to reset the alarm is to call the car manufacture to get the procedure, and should not cost you anything.

I had a wire running from my amp to the fuse box


You have obviously damaged neighboring wiring in the fuse panel. The reason the dash lights and radio is pulsing is because of feedback.

Did you check the fuse that is behind the radio ? There is a fuse which might of blown, but you will need to remove the radio from the dash and you need special tools for this.
