I was trying to jumpstart a car with a 2010 or 2011 chevy silverado fleet truck at work, and I think I hooked up the positive and negative cables on the positive. It was dark, and I couldn't see the negative, and I should have realized the two posts that close together weren't two different ones.What do you think happened? I'm a little worried about this since its a work vehicle.It died immediately, and we couldn't find any blown fuses. No electrical lights and won't turn over at all on silverado!Thanks!

checked several fuses in fuse box under hood. didn't know what the fuse on the battery was, or how to check it. said 175 littel fuse?
There is a 175 amp fuse on the firewall next to the battery. This fuse controls all electrical to the truck and is most likely the problem. You can check it with a test light. Connect the ground lead on the test light to the negative post on the battery which is the post closest to the firewall. Then touch the positive lead of the light to the positive lead on the battery to see if your light is working and the battery has power. If the light comes on, then touch the positive lead of the light to the 175 amp fuse. You need to remove the plastic cover off the fuse, it just pulls off. First touch the side closest to the battery, it should light up, next touch the side away from the battery. If the light does not light up, the fuse is blown.
