Hello, I recently had a problem. I was getting a jump from a coworker and he had placed the wrong wires on the battery, the positive on the negative, and now the car will not move. The engine starts, but the petele is stuck down and will not go anywhere. The machanic had tried to replace the throttle actuater, but that did not work. He said that it could be the computer or the petele essembaly, or all of the parts together. Am I being taken for a ride, and what should I do because the amount he is talking for this seems to be crazy?

Do you
have the same problem?

First of all, you need a new tech. Most likey blew fuses for everything. At least I hope so or your friend fried every computer in your car.

The pedal assembly has the module attached to it and may have fried.

You need an electrical shop with expierence. It will be costly in the repairs and more to come later.
