SOURCE: i put my jumper cables on backwards and when i

what vehicle has no power? the truck that was being jumped or the vehicle that was doin the jump? I would check all relays and fuses that have to do with ignition and PCM,DLC. ( ALSO TRY A DIFFERENT BATTERY ) The cross jump could have welded the internals of the battery causing the battery to have a crossed polarity and is ruined, leaving the battery with no charge forever.

Saturn jumper cables hooked up backwards


Try charging the battery more. Even though your lights may come one, starting a vehicle requires massive amounts of amperage from the batter. It's possible that your jumper cables aren't a thick enough guage to supply enough power as well. Sometimes the vehicle you're jumping from might not have enough power to support your vehicle's starting power requirements.

Connecting jumper cables the wrong wat around most likely has damaged electronic components such as a radio and computer.
Check the fuse box and replace any blown fuses.
If you still have problems then get an auto electrician to fix your car.

You have a few blown fuses; either under the hood or in the dash fusebox. Hooking up jumper cables backwards will pop a lot of fuses. I see this quite a bit.
