Wipers, flashers, inside lights door locks and side mirrors

Asked by Jun 21, 2017 at 04:55 PM about the 2008 Dodge Charger SE

Question type: General

I accidentally hooked the cables up backwards to
jump my car off (2009 dodge charger). Cables
smoked and got really hot before I realized they
were on backwards, now my blinkers, wipers,
interior lights, door locks and dash data are not
working at all.  Checked all the fuses and they are
okay. What could it be? Dre

Sounds like it either could be a totally blown BCM or if your lucky it might just need reflashed due to the power surge caused by the reversed polarity. Unfortunately the only place that can do that is the dealer. In my area it runs a hundred bucks.

Check all the fuses but there are probably a lot of things that were fried.
