Using a test light not your eyes,test all fuses with key on. More than likely it is a fuse blown.

Pull out your owner's manual. Usually you have to press and hold the traction button until the light goes out.

Ignition switch or relay should be killing power to this unit. Often power removal performs a reset of the device.

I am not sure what you are asking here. Did you severely overheat the engine? if so that can be the cause of the no start. A far as the relay goes do you have a security light on in the dash?

check the installation of the thermostat
the body of the thermostat has to face the head or block as it requires hot water to make it open
installed incorrectly will cause over heating

bank 1 is the front bank closest to the grill
sensor 1 is the heated oxygen sensor and is located in the manifold or before the cat converter
sensor 2 is the oxygen sensor and is located after the cat converter
get a specialist oxygen sensor tool so that the small wires are not damaged during repalcement

Did you hook the jumper cables up backwards, if so you have big problems. It should be red to red on battery post marked (+), black cable to the engine any bare metal.

Could have trashed the throttle body or gas pedal sensor. It is drive by wire. Have the codes read. A TPS code is the throttle, An APP code is the gas pedal. Neither are cheap.

Fuel pump is pulling to many amps. Replace it. I would ohm out the wires to it first. Nothing over 5 ohms.

Hello, check the large fuses in the fuse box under the hood, there is a 140 alternator fuse which is larger than the rest, it may be blown due to the short circuit, some models use an integrated fusible link assembly, these are about 1/4" wide and about 3" long and have either a blue or brown top, both versions are bolted in on the inside of the box, in some cases the sub fuse holder can be released from the box and pulled up enough so that you can remove the bolts.

Changing the fuse in the fuse box wont solve your problem On the back of the socket that is mounted in the dash that the lighter pushes into has a inline fuse that if over heated will blow. You will have to change the lighter. Toyota wanted close to $70 for a replacement lighter for my Tacoma. I never used the cigarette lighter for cigarett but needed to charge my cell phone so I replaced it with a dash Mount 12 Volt Power Socket for $10. Good luck.

worse case scenario: you could have fried the ecu / ecm

anything electrical is effected; had a neighbor's car whole front end wiring to his headlight system got fried/melted together
do you have access to an obd2 scanner and plug it in to check?

in hindsight, this is one of the reasons why calling AAA for a jumpbox is better than having someone hook up jumper cables incorrectly ~ most also will connect the cables directly to the dead car's battery terminals when you're really supposed to connect it to "engine ground"

once you gave it a look over all the electrical wiring and fuses, time bo bite the bullet and take it to the shop ~ sadly
