ok - i will try - I should have asked - what damage did I likely do as a result
of a jump with polarity reversed...
Is there anyway to check the fuse without removing it?
Kat - OK - the main fuse DID protect the electrical system - however the main fuse is bolted in (2 bolts and from the bottom) so I had the local shop install the new fuse. They charged me $68 which seems a little steep but then stupidity costs! Thanks for the help. aftermathe
