First mistake was replacing while running. Never, never do this. Computers hate voltage spikes. I dont see any advantage to doing this anyway

second, you blew the main fuse, hopefully, and would start there. Then check all the other fuses with a test light for further damage. Then keep your fingers crossed that you did not fry any of the 11 or so computers on the car
