LINCOLN MARK VII IGNITION SWITCH PROBLEM

1986 Lincoln Mark VII • 84,000 miles

I had to replace my ignition switch in my 86 lsc. I got the new switch plugged the electrical connector in and when I lined the metal peg up with switch it started to smoke(the key was in the ignition and it was turned on). I disconnected everything as fast as I could, and put old switch back in. I tried to start the car and I got nothing, no dash lights thats radio, clock, climate control. Cant hear fuel pump either. My? Is what could have fried along with the brand new ignition switch?
