I have a 2002 Saturn sl I was putting in a new sterio and when I connected the power wires there was a spark. After the spark I turned the key to see if it had power. When I turned the key to run every light on the dash started to flicker. I started the car after this and it ran for a second then died. Now the car will turn over but not start. Also the interior lights no longer work the sun roof still works but all the lights won't turn on. I have cheked all the fuses and the battery is good what should I look at now?

Do you have a multimeter or test light to do some testing?

At the ignition switch see if you have battery voltage at the big red wire.
