hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will help you ...

ok, the first thing to do here is to check all the fuses inside the vehicle as well as under the hood ,,..

these systems are protected for that reason and in most cases it will pop a few fuses..

but it is always a good thing to go through all the fuses ,as doing what was done will most likely pop more than one fuse...

its hard to tell you which fuses may blow as ,,the car was running or not running when the cables were hooked up wrong ... please let me know what you found and which fuses were poped ,but I think you will be ok , if you do check them all and replace the bad ones ...jazzmaster ..

I will check the fuses in the morning, it's midnight here now, I will let u know in the morning, thanks.
