After replacing it the car still wont start. Where is the fuse for the fuel pump? If there is

I blew a 40 and 120 fuse. The engine turns over but doesn't start basically I attached the terminals wrong. When I installed the battery.

Did you check the rest of the fuses with a test light?

Yes. When I go to start it I don't hear thefuel pump so I just need to check if thereis a fuse for that. If not then I don't know what else it could be.

You need someone familiar with these repairs. You checked the basics but you may have caused considerable damage to the computers from hooking it up backwards. Computers do not like voltage spikes at all.
