I'm Shantal and I'm a moderator topic.
I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.
I was checking to see if you had already found your answer or if you still need assistance from one of the Professionals.
Please let me know if you wish to continue waiting or if you would like to close your question?
Thank you,

, my name is ***** ***** I will try help you with this.
Most likely is you have 'fried' the control unit. You have probably blown a transistor or similar on the main control board when you had the polarity reversed.
I suspect your only options are to either have the control unit replaced or repaired by an expert repair shop.
