Hopefully the fuse did its job and protected the rest of the electrical system.

Replace the fuse and hope for the best

Once the fuse is replaced all is well. The electronics, including the ECU and Transmission Control Unit, are well protected against reverse voltage. Your husband is not the first or the last person to momentarily get the cables reversed.

He should also check the alternator fuse right beside the battery fuse. They blow about half the time when the battery is reversed and the battery won't charge if that is blown.
