Replaced the battery in my 2002 PT Crusier got smoke, now wipers will not turn off
I replaced the battery in my 2002 PT Cruiser and when I connected the negative cable, I got sparks and then smoke. I connected the battery based on the book. Afraid the simple problem, had starter engaging before I replace the battery, may now be a bigger one. When I turn the key, I do not hear the starter engaging. Worse yet, I got lights, fan, and turn signals. But I do not have radio or interior lights. Did I blow out several fuses, or should I look for a new car?
Sounds like you might have crossed the cables, negative to positive and visa versa. Look for a blown fuse and reconnect the battery correctly. If that doesn't work, time for a tow to the nearest mechanic. No need to purchase a new car, it can be fixed.
