Unhappy Freak accident in installing Push button, fuse blown? fried ecu? FML

Okay I was installing my Push Start Button kit in my Subie and I was almost done when my ignition wires touched a 2X3 inch metal plate and sparked. Now my car doesn't turn on anything when the key is turned to the ACC position. I checked all the fuses and they all seem fine. I switched out matching relays and nothing changed. When the key is in it still shows doors open when the doors are open and with chime. But other than that nothing really turns on. And my battery is fully charged. HELP PLEASE!

Try not installing useless parts.

Also, this has literally NOTHING to do with warranties.

probably blew a fusible link or the master relay. you are going to need some electrical knowledge, a factory service manual and a multi meter, or tow it to the dealer.

I used the fuse connect indicator that lights up if fuse is whole.

+1 Never work on anything without disconnecting the battery.
I would check every fuse. Pull them one at a time and see if they are blown. Then check everyone under the hood. I bet you just blew one of the main fuses (big ones). If that doesnt work GO TO A SHOP.

Main fuse in the underhood fuse box is blown. Should be a flat fuse from B+ to the fuses. May have to take the covers off the fuse block to see.

In future, disconnect battery negative before working on electrical.

Nuff said.

OP, when posting a thread like this, you need to come in with your head hung low and admitting you're a dmubass for even wanting to do such a mod if you want any help.

Something like, "OK guys, you can flame me for being a ricer and I know I'm really ghey for even spending my hard earned money on such a ricer mod...but here's what happened..."

That said, sorry man, hopefully it's something simple. If not, that's one expensive ricer mod

check your main fuse first. i know you stated that the door lights come on in the cluster??? Does your check engine light come on??? You might have toasted the ecu. Before you do anymore electrical repair disconnect your battery. This first easy step (but alot of people are lazy to do) would have saved your A$$ and money.
