Unfortunately, the mistake of hooking up the battery cables in reverse may have causes several sensors, relays, and electrical components to be damaged during the attempted jump start. There are most likely multiple electrical issues that need to be diagnosed and repaired by a professional mechanic. Having a local expert show up to your workplace or home to complete a diagnostic on your starting issue is probably your best option to have this addressed properly.
