    Default Connected wrong terminals to the battery on my beloved new jdm. Help

    Salam to all. Im new and have been a silent observer of threads and enjoy reading but today Im having to ask for help.

    I recently bought a jdm passo 2008 unreg and the car was parked for a quite long time because I was out of city. Now when I came back. I cleaned my car and when starting, found my battery too low to start (silent but not completely dead) so I decided to jump start the car and took another battery out of my other car and connected jump-start cables while keeping my second battery on the floor bjt the jumper cable clips seemed to weak to start so they didnt work.

    Now I told my partner-at-work to sit in the car and Ill ask him when to give "self/sulf" so I decided to pick up the second battery and let the battery connect by holding the battery upside down and touching the battery +ve and -ve points to the dead battery in the car (while the terminals of the car being connected to the dead battery) to start quickly and let the dead battery charge. NOW here I made a huge blunder that I mistakenly didnt see positive and negative sides of the battery and kept the +ve end on the negative side and the negative end on the positive side of the battery in my hand to the car's dead battery and asked my partner to start thr car. He tried but I noticed a light smoke coming out of the four met batteries's positives and negatives end while being in contact so I immediately kept the battery away and now when I give switch to the car the O/D lights (over drive light) on the cabin's meter keep blinking and the dvd's display is gone, the cabin's light which is kept on "DOOR" doesnt switches on when I open the drivers side door and the japanesse girl's sound and door-opened beep doesnt comes Im hell scared its my new beloved car. What damage have I done to the car and its ECU ? And to what extent? And how do I reverse this blunder of mine now? Please experts help me.

    @Xulfiqar sir please help.

    Did your car behave abnormally on the indash meter like showing abs light blinking and other weird lights? Also did it harm your ecu or any other major thing apart from lil accessories fuses?

    Does the engine heat up light turn on in the speedo cluster? Its red in color. If it does not then why are you worried about when does the fan start?

    The engine's light doesnt turns on but I kept my hand on radiator's cap and I couldnt keep it for more than 5 seconds it was getting hot.(dont know if its normal or not). I turned the car off thinking that maybe the engine's heatup warning sign's fuse might also have blown so it might not aware me of car getting hot and may ruin my car due to heating?

    Radiator cap is supposed to be hot; nothing unusual in that. Regarding engine heat up light; you can consult an electrician. How many lights turn on in the speedo when you just turn the key to start position before starting?

    I had started the car after a very long time so I didnt turn the ac on I thought of turning the ac on while giving it a run so that if the radiators fan is having a blown fuse then the ac would further heat up the car.

    Btw thanks for assisting me. I thought Xulfiqar bhai would help on it too.
