    please tell me I didn't fry my ecu

    So my battery was dead at work this afternoon. My buddy pulls his car up to help me jump it off. I hook it up fine to my car but like an idiot, I didn't check him hooking the jumper cables up to his. I hop in my car and as soon as I put the key in the ignition the horn starts blaring. I immediatley pull the cables off my car and fix the problem.

    When I hooked it up correctly the car would not do a thing. The only thing that works are the door locks and the chime when the key is in the ignition. I was in a rush so I took a different vehicle home and left mine at work.

    Am I screwed when I get to work tomorrow? Or by chance have a just blown a fuse. I really don't want to replace my ecu/utec.
