Nissan Quest

When replacing the battery in my 1997 Quest, I mistakenly reversed the polarity and hooked positive to negative.



Have I completely destroyed the electrical system? The only thing that works now are the headliights.

If you’re lucky the fusible links burned out and saved the rest of the electrical/electronic components. Check the main fuse panel under the hood.

Hope and pray the damage is limited to these links.
