Hopefully, the polarity of the cables connected pos-to-pos and neg-to-neg. That will cause no harm but will not start your car. Use a battery from another car and connect the cables to its terminals and then to the port under your hood. It helps if the other car is running at the time you make this jump. Connect cables first, then start the doner car, then your car.


Most probably the main fuse blew or some wiring burned. Have the car towed to a reputable garage near you so they can diagnose what the problem is and repair it. Then don't let others use your vehicle for jump starts in the future.
