So, i made a boo-boo while i was replacing the starter on my 500. I connected the Hot and Ground together - I was distracted, big no no. Either way; hooked up jumper cables to my battery and some sparks at the terminals happened. Got under the car fixed the issue and hooked everything back up normally; checked all the fuses and replaced the bad ones + a new battery. The car has the original starter and alternator rebuilt and installed. Attached I made a video of how its behaving now, super weird, if anyone has any ideas on how to troubleshoot it please let me know.

Make sure your terminals, positive and negative are tight on the battery posts. You are pulling some current. Enough To light up the dash, door locks. Not enough to start it.

Did your replace the starter or not? Make sure the cables to it are tight too.
