Re: nightmare of a problem, need help
I am not familiar with the probe and have no access to its wiring diagrams but would swap out the pump and engine start relays; you may have welded their contacts shut when you shorted out the starter. Or test the N/O (normally open contacts) on relays haven't gone closed circuit see http://www.the12volt.com/relays/relays.asp
if you need to know more about relays. Also check all your fusible links for continuity; don't rely on their appearance (just because the bit in they window is intact doesn't mean the FS is necessarily OK) use a multimeter or swap them out. Normally the fusible links should have provided some protection in your situation. Ditto with fuses; use a multimeter to check for continuity.
