Hi guys.I may sound like a goose but I've got this problem with my ford.The battery went flat so I changed it over to another,I accidently put the terminal on negative on the positive and so on for approximately 5 to 10 seconds and now the beast won't start.I have checked the main 100 amp fuse,it is OK.Every time I connect the battery and press any button the alarm goes off.PLEASE HELP ME. It has got me beat

All you gentlemen were right on the mark when you said that I may have some blown fuses.It was a 10 amp fuse that controls the smartlock,interior light and boot light.
Thanks guys as I thought I was worse than that. :) :lol:
