I am thinking a 12V power wire from a stereo install touched the metal TB
thats insulated from ground by the plastic intake it is bolted tobut it is
grounded thru the wiring harness and the small 18-22 guage ground wire
blew like a really long fusable link? But from the very brief description of
what happened and whats now wrong between a few different posts,
I really dont know and I am just guessing. A VOM could easily confirm this.

If he back fed 12v thru a circuit alot of bad things
could happen, even cooking the PCM, always disconnect
battery first when working with bare wires.
Yes as the grounds for the sensors and such terminate
at the PCM. Thats why you disconnect the battery
before fiddling with any wiring.
