Happened to me as well, also batteries plus. I just touched the last terminal on and it sparked, it blew one fuse under the left side cover. Check them all to be sure.

If it were a fuse, it would not start at all. As I read it, the engine will start and dies a short time after. That's not a fuse problem

Many mysteries in life.
Reverse voltage the starter motor should run backwards, sprag should not engage, engine should not crank over.

Correct voltage - possibly starter relay stuck and cranked engine for an extended time.

Many mysteries.... did it run?

As I said above, it is the Engine Control Unit or the brains of the engine and it is the black box right on top of the battery with the wire harness plugging into it.
