Stupid Me! 2008 Mercury Montego, 3.0 auto. Was attempting to check charging output with my new jumper box. It tells alternator output. Car was running & put jumper box cables REVERSED! Car died and wont start. I can not find blown fuse. Interior accessories still work. When turn the ignition, nothing clicks or turns over. I hear slight clunk from rear which I think is fuel pump. Nothing else. Have tried to do a reset & security reset, still nothing. I am wondering about starter solenoid or the PCM? I need direction. I do not have diagnostic equipment. Thanks.
