User quacktastic69 posted these pictures of the aftermath of a friend's attempt at a jumpstart gone very very wrong.
What happens when you hook up jumper cables wrong
The car then, after fixing cables, started right up but would not go over 25 mph.
What if you hook up jumper cables wrong
, don't do that, be damned careful with jumper cables, it's possible to cause a battery to explode this way, that ain't pretty, and if it gets acid on you, you will need to get it cleaned off in the worst way.
Toyota camry le window fails to roll up, but only when it's really hot1can hooking up battery cables incorrectly ruin the throttle body in a 2007 toyota xle v6.
At least with non computerized vehicles the worst that would happen is the jumper cables would melt!
Basically anything beyond letting the car as an entire system do what it's supposed to all by itself carries a risk of damage if you do it wrong.
, i think the questions you want to be asking are:What is a reasonable price for troubleshooting the problem and replacing the, presumably failed, throttle body?
