You should never install a battery backward double check everything before ever starting your car. your lucky for the fuses or you could of had a electric need to remove the aircleaner and there is a fuse block underneath it. theres also a post there usually with a plastic cover on it that post is for ever if you have to jump your car this is a positive post, but next to it is the fuse block. hopefully you didn't do anything to the computer.

This would typically be more of a fusible link than anything that looks like a fuse.

I'm not sure on a PT Cruiser, but they are usually on the fuse block, but in a different compartment with a separate cover. It will always be on the plus or positive or red side of the battery....

Sounds like a fuse. Find the fuse box when you visit Autozone and get the fuse replaced.

Will a pt cruiser run perfectly fine with a blown head gasket.lots of white smoke,but runs fine

If i remember right the color of the smoke will tell you what it is and i think blue smoke is water getting into the combustion chamber. The car can run like this for a while. Lots of times the car will run like normal besides the smoke. But the passage in the gasket will continue to get bigger and lead to more serious problems.

Had new battery put in 2001 PT Cruiser today with post backwards. It started smoking from center of car at bottom. What smoked/burned? Car appears to be fine but am leary of driving it and having it...

Transmisson switch or fuel pump wires and most likey fried the computer reversing diode destroys the computer instantly. Do Not drive it. Have it towed Or it could Catch fire and burn up, aso be sure that the battery is not hooked up. It may have cookded the starter too but don't know for sure.

2002 PT cruiser trying to start with no key!

Sounds like a short somewhere. Check the wiring around where he put the radiator in and make sure nothing is pinched, chafed, pierced or otherwise out of place.

I would check your wire harness. The starter is close to where you would be working on the radiator. I have not had the pleasure to put one in but i know its a tight squeez in there.
