I did the exact same thing today on my 1997 f-150. Got a spark then a pretty good puff of smoke. I hit the top fuse on the primary battery fuse wire feeding off the drivers side of the fuse. All while changing the rear plug on the passenger side. I hit it with my ratchet extension while it was attached to the plug. Solidly grounded it out. Any help on what you did to correct your situation would be greatly appreciated.

So today I was changing spark plugs on my 98 f150 and I touch one of the wires connected to the primary battery fuse on accident with a tool and got a spark. Didn't think much of it but now I have no power to anything in my car. No lights no click nothing. It's like the battery is not even in the car. Everything was fine up until today. Battery has power and tried jump starting but wouldn't take. Ive check the majority of the fuses. All seem fine as well as swapped many relays Any ideas?

Please help if anyone knows where to begin. I did check both fuse boxes on the truck . All good. I am aware there are some major fuses to check now and that is where I lose it.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I have included a picture with the exact location that I shorted out the elctric with my socket extension. the other end was attached to the plug.
