You may have blown out a fusible link. They can be cut out and replaced. Look around the battery for a wire whose insulation looks partially melted, or bubbled out a bit. Fusible links act like fuses and burn out before further damage in the wiring circuits occur. They are located near the battery because they distribute power to different circuits. Today, maxi-fuses in power distribution boxes or centers have largely done away with fusible links.
It all depends on how lucky you are today. Connecting the battery backwards can destroy some high-dollar stuff. If you are really lucky, you will only have a blown fuse (or fuses). Check both of your main fuse blocks on the left side of the engine compartment,
One of the boxes is called the "Fusible Link" box and the other is called the "Engine Compartment Junction Block" (J/B) (See picture below).
Your main circuits are protected by the 40 Amp and 80 Amp fusible links in the Fusible Link box and the 120 Amp Alternator Fuse in the Junction Block. You will most likely find one or more of these fuses/fusible links blown.
Check the fuse box for more blown fuses it is located under the spare compartment above the hood release. You simply pull off the compartment unit and the fuse box is inside. You should find your spare fuses and your fuse pull tool. To install the compartment unit again just set the bottom part on the lip and close it, you'll hear a metal click and you are good. blown fuses
