    Hi,
    I was jump starting a friends truck today and after we finished I accidentally touched + to - with the jumper cables.
    I was jumping from the remote (+) and the remote(-) after shorted the jumper cables the remote battery leads on my truck don't have power anymore.

    Does anyone know how to fix this I have been looking for a bad fuse but still can't find one in the fuse panels?

    Help please!

    The remote + jumper stud is connected directly to the battery via the battery cable, no fuses or breakers of any kind. Not sure exactly how you determined that it's dead between it and the battery because if it were, the truck wouldn't start.

    Truck starts.
    I have dual batteries (diesel)
    Thats what I think too the (+) looks like its connected directly to the battery

    how i tested it (this is going to sound stupid) after the short circuit I tried touching the jumper leads together again and they weren't sparking anymore.

    Is the ground maybe fused or breakered?

    Some jumper cables have short circuit protection built into them you know. At this point I doubt there's even a problem with the truck.
