Check your fuses first. If you're lucky a fuse blew. If not, something got fried. Possibly the computer (PCM). HTH. -Jim
Electricity travels at the speed of light (186,000 mi/sec) and that's a whole lot faster then you can get to those cables /// If it was only for a brief period you could have just blown a fuse ...any longer and look for "Krispy Kritters"
Check the voltage of the battery with a multi-meter. If less than 12 volts that may be the problem. Computer components to not react well when polarity is reversed.
