Sounds like you hooked up the jumper cables backwards and smoked the alternator and blew some fuses.

hello dsuzu,


jump start was correct with jump box,even tried to kick start(manual trans)new battery. when key is turned on starter clicks a couple of times then horn wont bloww and lights become dim. after a while every thing goes back to normal but no start even with jump
any thoughts you have will be most appreciated.

You initially stated the engine would not start, now your saying it won't crank. It obviously can't start if wont crank so figure out why the starter is not working.
