I did something REALLY STUPID....
Yesterday I did something REALLY STUPID. My 1992 Alfa Spider's battery was drained, so I attempted to use a little battery booster/charger to jump it to be able to start the car. However, I did NOT check the battery poles and connected the booster's clamps on backwards - that is, I connected the positive booster clamp to the negative battery pole and the negative booster clamp to the positive battery poll. I noticed some smoke coming off the booster wires, and disconnected them....
My question is - the battery appears to be shot, but did I damage any of the car's electrical system as well? That's my BIG concern....
Any ideas/advice is welcomed, please!!!!
