Can mixing up the order of the spark plug wires blow the starter motor while trying to start?

Because i accidently mixed um up and tried to start it and it wouldnt start, then i put them in the right way, and now it wont crank, the starter wont engage, is there a fuse it could have blown?

or maybe blow a plug or something?

Check all your connections to the starter, check battery connections, check battery.

Sounds like you had the plugs wired wrong, possibly flooded the engine, and then burned your battery trying to start the car.

Does it do anything when you try to start it now? Any sounds?

well when i try to start it now sometimes the starter clicks, but you may be right about me burning out the battery, dont have a charger right now, will have to wait to get a jump

Yeah, sounds like battery is dead. Usually it'll either go Rur rur rur rur..... and then stop, or just go CLICK
