    Change my battery on my Scion TC 2008 yesterday and now it won't crank no lights no interior lights only headlights any help is highly appreciated
    check the main fuse in the under hood fuse box. Sometimes that just goes POOF when you replace a battery. It happens sometimes, something to check.
    Thank you for replying. Unfortunately AutoZone gave me the wrong battery and now my car is in the shop. My mechanic said best case scenario blown fuses, worst case scenario fried computer. I'm super pi$$ed.

    hey you're welcome.. some of these scion forums are dead but some of us scion owners are still around. What battery did they give you? Oh wait.. you had the posts reversed (positive was negative..) and hooked it up and poof! Yeah I'd be pissed too, your mechanic is correct that the best scenario is just the fuses that they did their job and protected the rest! Well post back what happened.. hope it's just the fuses!
    I will most definitely let you know how it turns out. I'm hoping for the best.
    Well $495 later she's back on the road. Didn't notice until I got home the radio isn't working but everything else is fine. Blew my main fuse and a lot of others my mechanic said it was a pain in the a** to go through. I'm broke but happy 😁

    ouch.. ya labor prices for mechanics isn't cheap! But the good news it was ONLY the fuses that it blew, not the computer! That is much more $$$. And the radio, the fuse might be blown, easy to check on the fuse box under the dash. Glad it was not as bad as it could be and worked out well for you! awesome!
