The other day, I had to do a battery replacement on my Aveo... However, I was not paying 100% attention when i put the battery in, and reversed the cables by accident.. Since, I had to replace 5 fuses; including the 100 amp fuse on the battery itself. I have some other unexplained issues that have also cropped up since the incident:
- Center console lights and dash backlighting are dark. (They do not turn on as it gets dark.)
- Rear passenger side running light has burnt out.
- Gas gauge seems to be working, but is now sitting in a different spot when completely full.
- Shift lock does not disengage when I press in the brake pedal to shift into drive. (I have an auto.) I have to remove the small plastic cover near the shifter and use a screwdriver to manually release the shift lock.
Overall, I am concerned that I might have done a great deal of electrical damage to my car, and am wondering how deep this rabbit hole is going to go. (When I mean rabbit hole, I mean the money evaporating out of my wallet.)
Any help on the subject will be greatly appreciated!
