The battery in my car was connected backwards. I replaced the blown relays that are in the fuse box. There is full power to all acc, but the car just won’t crank and it won’t turn over. So I jump-started the starter and it’s working, but it’s not getting the signal. Everything else in the car works fine, as far as I can tell. What should I do next to find the solution?
Hello. Most of the time this is caused by a failed main fuse. If the fuses have been replaced then it is more than likely a bad module. In most cases the engine control module will fail when the battery is jumped backwards.
The computer needs to be scanned with a scan tool to see if it is powering up and seeing sensor signals.
