Was the other car running when you jumped it? If it was you could have fried something. Best get the codes pulled and go from there. Newer cars charging systems aren't designed to recharge a dead battery, it will just burn up the alternator if your lucky, I've seem voltage spikes do terrible damage to electronics in vehicles,
