    Replaced head gasket on 07 accent. Put everything back together didn't pay attention out battery in backwards for a sec and blew 125 fuse. Replaced now the car starts and idles but if I push accelerator it stalls or revs to 4000. Any suggestions?

    I have replaced the battery on my 2001 Elantra and put it in backwards
    Took me a couple of weeks to sort everything out
    Big fuse 150 amp which was held in by nuts and bolts
    Door locks didn't work. Radio shorted. No headlights.

    You have done the same but it is on top of replacing a head gasket.
    So who knows if it is battery related or gasket related
    I don't know. Guess would start by checking all the fuses and relays
    And then go from there.

    Sorry, I am no help.
