Really hard to say depending on what got fried. Do you have access to a code reader to see what the check engine code is? Is the battery fully charged now? What happens when you hit the started button, does it try to turn over? Do the accessories come on? Dash lights/AC?

Check all of the 8 engine bay fuses. The fuses you mention "ignition and battery" are the type of service, not the circuit it protects.

No i don't have a code reader to see the code. My car it is not a vvc it is the standard edition 2003 model with 122 rover engine. I will see to today if it reset mil because i put the cable off all over night. When i hit the started button when it was ok i hearing a noise and then stopped . Now this noise i always hearing without stopping and when i turn on the car start trying to over and over the the speedmeter like i push the accelaration and check engine lights on and off all the time. The lights are working fine i diidn't try the ac yet, i will see it today and i tell you. I will only check the fuse box and show those two blown fuse 7.5. I will check them all to today again. How can i reset the mil is there another way without scan tool.
Thanks
