I was putting in a switch for the halos on my headlights today and I decided to take the easy way out and not disconnect the power when feeding the line through.

Well it ended up hitting metal and sparked up but didnt blow the fuse (I have it in the cigarette lighter fuse) but now multiple things dont work like rear tail lights, dome and gauge lights, stereo, all brake lights but the third one dont work but the reverse lights do.

Is there a common ground or a relay that may have messed this up, I'm really dreading taking into the shop to get it looked at.

Any help would be great, thanks.

I am sure you have a short circuit somewhere. I had that prblem in my sunbird, I was lucky the short was only behind the dash.

Double check your work, as it may not be the sparking or temporary short circuit that is causing the problem, but the wiring you put in.
