    I was mocking up my Scanmaster G and had everything wired up with a jumper wire from the fuse box to power it, and it fell and the wire touched my steering column and I heard a pop.

    I now don't have any dash, dome, break lights or turn signals. I have checked the fuses and changed the one circuit breaker with know luck.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Been there it pops one of the fuses. Sorry I don't remember what fuse but it's tied to one of them.

    Sounds like a few different circuits are dead. It's possible you blew the fusible link down by the starter.

    Those two BAT feeds are through the CIG-CLK fuse (20 A). If that one is good, then as Rick mentioned, took out a fusible link at the starter.

    Hit both sides of the fuse socket with a test light to verify that circuit is dead.

    There are 3 seperate links by the starter. One can blow while the others are still good. So only certain things will be effected depending on what one blows.
