The location you are pointing to looks like the transmission gear indicator cable. The plastic braket goes around the sterring wheel and "pulls" the indicator to the proper gear indicator (P, R, N, O, D, 1, 2). The cable or bracket may be binding on a part of the sterring wheel. (Make sure you disconnect the battery and WAIT ten minutes for the capacitors in the Air Bag system (squibs) to discharge before working behind the steering wheel.
BUT! If I did know any better, I would say that the blend door on your A/C may be bad. It sounds as if it is coming from behind the steering wheel, but you get NO AIR.
The blend door is located behind the radio towards the glove compartment.
If all you did was connect to your battery when performing the jump, (I do not recommend that from car to motorcycle) Then likely you have bad timing. If you place the negative lead somewhere on the car, you may have shorted something out.
Check the blend door.
