BATTERY WRONG POLARITY

1989 Acura Integra

Electrical problem
1989 Acura Integra 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 175000 miles

I hooked up the battery to the wrong polarity with the ignition on. It sparked. Now it has no electrical current, except the hazard lights which have aby pass. (So the battery appears to be fine). What electical component has the most likely failure? What sequence should I test to determine?

Hi phennessey,

Check all the main fuses in under hood fuse box. When reversed polarity occurs, the most common fault would be blown fuses.
