Default Need Advice/Help on Electrical Problem

I have a 1999 Forester

I installed an aftermarket/generic tail light harness. I did not realize that these cars required a special electric tow harness. Supposedly the one offered directly by Subaru has a special resistor.

Anyway...the first time I hooked up the trailer with my headlights on I got a short in my electrical system.

I have no power to my CD control unit
I have no power to the CD changer under the front passenger seat
I have no inside dome lights
My radio works but has no memory...it resets the channels and clock every time I power down.
I also fried/melted one of the front headlight boots/plugs...but was able to replace it.

Any suggestions on where to start ?
