Customer Question
I tried to jump...

I tried to jump start the battery in my 2009 Camry and connected the cables the wrong poles on the battery. Replaced battery and had power inside car but no sound when trying to start the ignition. I took it to a local mechanic who said I needed a new multi link. fuse. Replaced fuse and now car will crank but will not turn over. Suggest I tow it to dealer. He said I might need a new Computer.

Mechanic's Assistant: Most vehicles have two fuse panels. Have you located both?

Yes. Inside and out

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Camry yourself? What have you tried so far?

I would like to try.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

That's all I kn ow

I don't know the answer. I think I will reach out again tomorrow when I have the car.

If all fuses are good and he changed fusible link and The Check Engine light does not come on when you turn switch on and no communication with ecm if scanner plugged in

and we have no power on our DLC ( data link connector (OBDII) plug ) then yes possible you fried ECM , but you can replace it worst case

Ok sounds good we talk to you tomorrow

Click on link to view ECM location in case needed replacing later & connector pin out
