1995 Rover 2 Series 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 104000 miles

My Rover 220 Gsi needed a new Battery. So ive replaced the Battery and now the car alarm needs resetting. This is the usual case and ive used the code to reset it a number of times with locking and unlocking the car in a sequence. This time it hasnt worked and the red car alarm light stays on! Now what do I do with an immobiliser that I cant turn of? When I connected the Battery there was smoke coming of the positive terminal. I didnt use the correct order in taking the leads of. I put the earth on frst and them the positive. Im worried ive donr something major. What dya think?

Do you
have the same problem?

Disconnect the battery agian for at least 5 minutes ...Check the battery for a good charge and check all main fuses are not blown ... then reconnect the battery in the correct sequence if it is still good ... then retry the 4 digit code on the drivers door ... it should work this time !!

hope this helps, let me know
