do you mean put the battery terminals on back to front??
check the fuses next to the battery..
these will blow before the ecu will...

+1 Fuses are there for a reason and that is to protect the car and the parts like the alternator, ecu, headlights and various other electrical devices !

Ok, lets start from the top.Now i wasent there but from what he said it goes like this.
he bought it of my mate and his sister riped the radio out with force and destryed the plugs.So he tried wiring them up with new ones and two wires crossed and he heard a bang at raced to start it but it just wont work.

Ok check the "radio" fuse in the fuse box located the the bottom right of the steering wheel, this can blow really easily since its a small rated fuse. Most of the time this will be the issue, check if it is toasted, if so go get a new one and replace it then try again with the negative terminal disconnected from the battery. If its not the "Radio" fuse check all the others in the box !

It only takes 1 minutes to check fuses and a few minutes to drive to your local automotive place, so it isnt a grueling or long job !
