Default HELP!!! No keyless entry & power to Radio/clock/interior light

00 GS400 w/stock cd changer/cassette player.

Got a new battery today and I'm so smart I install it backwards(+ to -/- to +). New battery doesn't have positive as a RED terminal. Just a small sign on the battery which I can barely tell. Install it incorrectly for a few seconds and the horn was honking. So i check and battery was installed wrong. So I install it the correct way and found that some of my fuses goes bye bye. Even my 120amp ALT fuse blows. Replaced all blown fuse. Car starts and everything's fine except my RADIO/CLOCK/& interior lights are not working. Radio fuse is new. Every single fuse from engine bay to kick panel has been individually pulled out and tested. I can't tell if any of the relays are working or not. Any way to tell? What else can I check? Now radio/clock/interior lights are not working.

Also, my keyless entry is not working - key fob. It is the master key. I found a reprogram thread but wasn't clear as I try few times and it doesn't work. Need help badly....

This happened to another fellow who jumped his car with the wrong terminals.

I believe he went ahead and replaced the fuses to the items that didn't work, even if they appeared ok.

Check your ECU-B fuses.

All fuse good. I test each fuse and the ones that were bad were replaced with the correct amperage fuse.

I'm just lost because the radio fuse blew too and I did replace that one but still no power to radio/clock/top interior light...BUT the light on the door works when door is open. So I'm assuming that light doesn't share the same life line as the top interior light.

Will look behind the radio today and hoping there's a fuse there.

Anything else I should check?

Don't bother, there are no fuses behind the radio.

Replace the fuses that pertain to the issues you're having, even if the fuses look ok.

Problem Solved. There's another panel of fuse on the passenger kick panel.

FOR FUTURE REFERENCES: The "DOME" fuse(5amp) powers the RADIO/CLOCK/DOME LIGHTS, AND something with the keyless entry system. After replacing this fuse my keyless entry works again perfectly w/o needing re-programming.

FOR FUTURE REFERENCE the dome is a 10amp fuse NOT a 5 amp
