Default Help car wont start :(

Hey guys first off im new to this forum i got my sc300 about a month ago

Everything was working fine then i noticed the battery light was on while i was driving to work parked it ran inside because i was late. Came out later would start made that clicking noise

So i went and got a new battery and swaped it out only thing is the guy at autozone gabe me the wrong battery i pluged it in backwards thanks to this and lost all power to the car

Then i check on here to see what to do
So far i have already went and got the correct battery and replaced it and the alternator fuse which had blown. Now the car seems to have power dashlights radio ect and it cranks pretty good but wont start

Please some help thanks everyone

Did you check your ignition fuse? It should be located in your driver side kick panel in a small black box that says "fuse".

I think your alternator may go soon from experience mine came on I ignored it because I replaced the battery and the light came then went away and return again after a month or so while driving, my car felt like it stalled while driving on the freeway, sure enough it was the alternator
