Default 2000 RS needs some electrical help.

Hey, I'm new with this forum so here it goes. I have a 2000 2.5RS and recently I left something on in the car and I drained the battery. I went to jump start the "Umph", that is my cars name, and I crossed the poles on the battery. Dumb, ok! I corrected the problem and the car still did not start, in fact it doesn't make a sound at all when I turn the ignition. I charged the battery still no go on the start.
I have only had Umph for a few months, I don't know what the electronics are of the Subaru electric starting circuitry, so any help with what may have happened when I crossed the jumper cables would be appreciated. If it is something I can take care of cool. Otherwise, Umph is getting a free AAA tow truck ride to the Subaru Service Center.

I just finished looking at the fuse box under the hood. 80 amp gone! 15 amp door lock gone. The rest look ok. I'm off to look under the dash for the other fuse box. If i can find it.


Ps I'm new in this forum and I just got the car from my son a couple of months ago. Nice to know there are fellow Subaru people out there to help.

As you found out the 80 amp fuse is the one that usually get burned out for this kind of thing. Lots of good Soob help here.
