wrong polarity

sorry to hear about this,gee whiz, but it reminded me of a new device i see being marketed, its a jump starter you plug into your cigarette lighter socket, its rechargeable, dont know much about them, but as my scenic has the battery under the front seat, and its an auto, i couldnt think of a better present for Xmas, has anyone tried these gadgets, its a small version of the big battery pack ones. at least its safe to use in the dark. they cost around $40.0 nz out here.

1 big mistake

thank you all for your help & advise, i think i got very very lucky it wasnt as bad as first thought. all the main fuses were ok, it was the 5amp fuse to the computer that blew, taking all the electrics out. i dont know as yet if it has done any more damage, will have to wait & see. i still have a flat battery but that will be sorted today. Thank you all (Gerry)
