PUT THE JUMPER CABLES ON WRONG

1997 Volkswagen Jetta

What can be wrong wit my car I jump start the car but evidently put the cables wrong then it did not start because the fuel pump did not pump.

I fitted a new pump so it start then I just drive a few kilometers and parked the car. When I wanted to drive again it starts but just went dead after a few seconds. There is power on the harness but the pump won't pump. What can be the fault. I need help urgently.

Did you reverse the cables? If so, look for blown main fuses as well as other fuses.

Did you use a new or used pump? Check your connections, make sure you have gas and re check the fuses.
