reverse polarity ?

just wondering how bad it is to short the battery for a few seconds.obviously
something shorted as she wont start.but the weird thing is the fan wasn't working,so I knew it had to go in for either the stat or relay,but now after I shorted it the fan runs as soon as I touch the battery cables to terminals?
just wondering how bad it may be?
thanks in advance

Year? Model? I think the PDM controls charging and the fan on my 2006.

Ok back to my debacle,looked on line and it shows 2-parts listed as a ecm,1-small blk cube,2-larger ribbed style,pulled the smaller one and cleaned,no smell of burn or any breaks.ohm across the terminals(not sure sequence)but didn't have any between 2 terminals.
Also didn't mention that I have been having a lot of dead battery issues over the last 2 summers,and the fan would not run while mowing she would get hot.
how else can I ck which of these is actually the ecm?
thanks again
