1984 Dodge Diplomat

Engine Mechanical problem
1984 Dodge Diplomat V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 26000 miles

WHILE CLEANING THE CONTACTS ON THE PLUGS THAT GO INTO THE AIR CLEANER I ACCIDENTALLY ARCED 2 OF THE WIRES. THIS CAUSED A SNAP HISS ST THE CONNECTION FOR THE BATTERY JUST PRIOR TO THE RELAY CONTACT ON THE UPPER FIRE WALL.I REPAIRED THE CONNECTION AND PLUGGED THE UNIT BACK IN BUT NOW THE CAR WILL NOT FIRE. THE CAR WILL TURN OVER BUT WILL NOT FIRE. THE CAR WAS RUNNING FINE 5 MIN BEFORE THIS HAPPENED. IS THERE A WAY TO BYPASS THE COMPUTER ON THE AIR CLEANER AND FIRE THE CAR?

Hi: There is no way to bypass it. It will need replaced.
