2008 Chevy Cobalt LS
I was installing a charged battery and accidentally put the positive wire on the negative terminal and then as soon as I touched the negative wire to the positive terminal I realized my mistake and put them on correctly. The car was never started with the terminals switched, in fact it was probably no longer than a split second.
After installing correctly, the car would not start and there was no clicking or anything to indicator the starter attempting to work. All the electronics seem to function as my lights, radio, dashboard indicator lights seem to be working normally. I checked the battery voltage when starting and there was less than 200mV drop, so I think the battery is not the issue.
I'm going to start checking fuses, but just thought I would see if anyone has had this issue before or had any advice
The car will not start in park or neutral, the lights turn on and radio functions, but a check engine light is now illuminated, I don't think this was there before.
