Start by checking for blown fuses. There are going to be at least a few. There are protection diodes built into most computer modules to force fuses to blow and save those computers, but they still can be damaged sometimes. Suspect the Body Computer for wiper problems and the Engine Computer for running problems. There will likely also be a very large fuse blown for the generator. It can usually handle the very short current surge until the fuse blows so it probably is okay.
