98 sable no power to windows & int. lights

I was installing an alarm and seemed to have killed my power windows and interior lights. I connected the battery to test the system and forgot to disconnect the battery. I was making a final connection on the interior light wire and there was a spark. It blew the light under the dash and it must have done something else as well. I have checked every fuse I can think of and they are all fine. Any help?

Did you check the main fuse box under the hood? You may have thrown the big one. If thats not the case then keep us updated and we will get this worked out!!!

Yes, I checked that fuse box too. Could it be a relay? How do you know if a relay is bad?

If you have a volt meter you can check the voltage on the relays......as long as you know the voltage that is. I have a 98 SHO and I am not sure what the voltage should read on the relays. if you have a haynes or can get one then it will tell you in here.
