1999 Toyota Rav4 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 164000 miles
I recently replaced the battery and alternator on my Rav4. Unfortunately the vehicle won't start. It cranks, but won't catch. The instrument panel lights come on, but no headlights(although I get high beams), and no dome light, yet my power locks work. I'm confused. I may have done some damage when I connected the battery, because I connected it backwards and tried starting it several times before I realized the mistake I made. I popped the Alt fuse twice because of this. That's why I initially thought it was the alternator. Now I'm scared I did some serious damage. I need HELP desperately.
