Feel like a tool and i fear the worst.
The last few days i have been having battery problems.
every morning ive had to jump it.
jumped it this morning with new leads i bought.
these new leads have a red handle on all prongs so when i was connecting negative to my audi i saw the red handle and assumed stupidly connected it to negative instead.
my friend started donor battery and i was in my car and started mine after a 10 seconds of leads connected.
i started to see smoke and immediately shouted for him to turn off engine.
the leads have melted.
tried it again with leads connected right way and nothing!!!
when i try and start my engine now one dash light (traction) comes on and there is a faint ticking noise.
i have a 2003 audi a4 1.9 td.
i am scared ive fried ecu or more!!!!
can anyone tell me if there is a safety fuse on my ecu on this model or what sort of damage i can expect?
also where i can look to see extent of damage?
getting new battery tomorrow and hoping it will work.
