Hello and welcome to justanswer.comIf you jumped your vehicle correctly you should not have caused any damage. Lets disconnect the negative battery terminal cable and put a good charge on the battery. Reconnect the cable and start it up to see if the warning goes out. If it comes back on then we will need a scan tool to read the stored fault codes in the ECU.
YES, unfortunately I have jump started it via battery!! Is this a major problem?
It really should not have caused it but it is possible. Try doing that disconnection and lets make sure the battery is fully charged.
