Okay, good news is the engine starts, as crossing the battery terminals can totally damage lots of fuses and ECM's ..So your lucky here ;-)

What you have to do now is check the fuses under the drivers side dash
as here are the fuses for the fuel indicator, turning indicators,radio,a/c,cental locking. this should be a 7.5amp fuse so use another 7.5 and not a 10 or 15 amp fuse as i often see used.

Need further assistance then please get back to me .
