Q: What happens if i connect my battery backwards? on 1997 Honda Accord

Recently my battery needed to be replaced. I went to the auto store and got a new battery. Connected it to my car and realized that the pole were switched and I connected the wrong poles. Now that I replaced that battery with the correct one no lights come on in my car.

Unfortunately there is no protocol for repairing a reversed polarity situation .. Start by having *ALL* of the fuses TESTED.

Good luck!
