Re: Hooked up Jump-cables backwards
Its hard to say. Many things could be damaged. Does you car have an ECM? Chances are the diodes in the alternator would have blown before the coils would have been damaged. The voltage regulator may have taken a hit as well as the ignition module. The only way to tell is to start repairing what is broken and keep working until it's all fixed unfortunately. Did you take the alternator into the auto parts store for testing? What up the jump vehicle? I bet that put a hellova load on it as well.
