Battery will have to be completely discharged THEN *correctly* recharged..

Probably best to purchase another battery - install it CORRECTLY then commence *hands-on* testing.

Good luck to ya!

Disconnect battery negative cable while you’re trying to decide what to do..

Only by *hands-on* testing can the possible damage be discovered - there is no cut and dried repair protocol for REVERSED battery polarity.
