If you reside in the US, autozone will scan codes for free. As your vehicle isn't driveable I'd rent a scanner somewhere and check your system. Worst case scenario is the PCM is dead from the short and caused a failure in the electrical system. Once you get new fuses in and make sure no more wires ground out, disconnect the battery and turn the key on to let any electrical power in the system drain out completely. Wait half hour or so and then reconnect the battery and attempt to start the vehicle. If that doesn't work, do get a scanner as your PCM may be shot....
