I think at this point you should stop before someone gets hurt. Take it to a pro ad ask him to tell you exactly what happened. Listen and learn.

Most likely blew a few fuses. If you know where the fuse box is, its time to start pulling fuses and checking to see if they are blown or not. Its hard for me to describe a blown one, but I'll see if I can find a few pics. Remember, if you need to replace a 25 amp ( think its amp ) fuse, you need to use a 25 amp fuse. You can get these a lot of places. Auto parts stores, hard ware stores, etc. Good luck.
