Problems due to Jumpstart?

1182 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Supercharged SEC
I had to jump start my 94 s420 and in haste I accidently hooked up the cables backwards + to -. Immediately afterwards, my warning light for ABS goes on (yellow), as well as my speedo going dead. Could my screw-up with the cables cause these problems?

RE: problems w/ junp start

I am not sure if it was the mix up of the cables that caused the Speedo and the ARS to not function. If it did hopefully the fuze prevented any damage. If I were you I would check the fuzes. This is what I hope happned and if so will be the cheapest way to fix the problem.

raphster,

I bet you blew your altenator. Typically when your altenator goes out your electronics start to fail. Is your radio loosing power or are your lights dimmer?
