I have a 2007 Spectra EX with an electrical problem that I cannot identify. It has a new battery, but no power is getting from the battery to anything. No lights, no door locks, nothing. The problem was caused by me being stupid: when I was jump starting the car, and hooked the cables to the wrong sides of the battery (pos on neg, neg on pos). Yes, I know how completely stupid that was.

Here's what I've done so far to try to identify the problem:
- Replaced the battery
- Checked the fuses (One was blown--the 15A in the interior fuse box labeled "power." I replaced it, but that had no noticeable effect.)
- Checked the relays (This was the first time I've actually tested relays, but the multimeter that I got indicated continuity for all of the ones I tested. I tested the relay from the interior box labeled "power" and the one labeled "main" in the fuse box under the hood.)

Does anyone have an idea of where the problem might be? Thanks!

Thanks for the replies.

The 120A main fuse looked intact, and I just tested it with the DMM, which confirmed that it didn't blow.

Any other thoughts?
