My battery was dead so I jump-started it. I accidentally cross-connected the battery. I went to start the car and I noticed on the panel, it showed that my high beams were on and my emergency flashers were on but not flashing, it showed them being solid. So I disconnected the jumpers and sure enough, yep I am a messed up and crossed them. I placed them back correctly and tried to start the car, it started! But none of the instrument panel was working, or radio, clock, power windows, pedal, sunroof, etc. The only thing that worked was my headlights and dome light. I tried revving the engine and I noticed that the gas pedal had to be depressed close to half way down before the engine would increase in revs. So the throttle is not responding correctly but the car was still running, a plus I guess. Well I got out and disconnected the jumper cables and right when I removed them the car stopped running? I have noticed that the etcs fuse is blown along with the radio number one. All other fuses under the hood at the battery are good. I am currently checking the ones at the kick panel inside the car.
I am not sure where any other fuses are located and I do not know how to check the relays if that even pertains to this issue. If someone could give me some ideas on this matter, and directions on where other areas to look, that would be awesome! Thank you for your time!
have the same problem?
