05 Toyota Tacoma.
My brother inlaw hooked the jumper cables up backwards.
Everyone told him he fried his alternator.
I say no ......it was 4 days ago and his battery is still starting the truck , it should have gone dead by now.

But the problem is all his idiot lights are now on.
ABS, check engine etc.
His words are his dash "looks like a fucking christmas tree".
Any ideas he lives on Hadia Gwaii so doesnt have access to a dealer or anything.

Once it's disconnected, touch the two battery clamps together.
This resets the newer Toyota stuff.
