Battery Light On-Please Help
I have a stock '92 5.0. I had the battery out of it and when I re-installed it, I hooked up the terminals wrong (- to +, - to +). There was a series of sparks followed by a little plume of smoke coming from the positive wire. nothing is melted, and the car started up right away when I hooked the cables up properly. Now the battery light is on on the dash. I drove it around for a while thinking the battery could just be low on charge but the light is still on after the drive and even after disconnecting and re-connecting the battery. I even tried putting the battery from my other '92 in it to see if the light would go off and it didn't. I put the one that I connected wrong in my other '92 as well and no battery light. Would could be the issue here? The alternator is within 2 years old and the battery is holding a charge. Could I have done any serious damage? The battery was hooked up wrong for one second before I pulled the cable.
Help is appreciated!
