Toyota Celica: My sons 2001 Toyota Celica GT. Had a dead battery

Customer Question

My sons 2001 Toyota Celica GT. Had a dead battery so we replaced it. After we changed the battery my son started the car and it started right up. But at that point he says we get issues. He said he couldn't put it in gear the shifter was locked and would not come out of park. He also said he has no dash lights, turn signals, the tachometer doesn't work, the Windows and locks don't work. We also have no radio, heat or air. This seems unlikely its that many fuses. Do you have any suggestions for me.
Thanks,
Chip

HI,

Anything unusual when the battery was replaced such as sparking at the cables and battery?

Also, I need to pull the schematics, so I will need the 17 digit vin number

HI,

Ok, you need to check the 120amp main fuse in the engine compartment fuse box. If this blow it will cause all the current problems
