Trouble began with battery light coming on, then tachometer and speedometer quit working. Replaced alternator and battery. Terminals accidentally switched. Radio fuse blown and replaced. Drove home, approx. 13 miles, no problem. This morning tried going to town. After about 5 miles the tachometer, speedometer and radio stopped working. Turned around and came home. Car died completely as soon as I pulled into home. What should we try now?

Reversing the terminals has cause issues with controllers and modules. The problems are just beginning from this event.

Check voltage at battery with engine running first
