I hooked up my amp hot and messed some stuff up (i already know so don't dog me. Lesson learned big time) my car wouldn't crank but I had power to all accessories but amp and stereo. I also heard very rapid clicking coming from my two inside fuse boxes I messed with a bunch of stuff and decided to try and take out my accessory power breaker (i think that's what it's called, it's the black box below all my fuses). When I took it out halfway my stereo turned on and I was able to start my car but I plugged it back in and it won't start again, but I don't hear my fuse boxes clicking anymore.

Can I ask if the security light is flashing when you crank the car over? This will be the problem, the system must be reset.

This guide can help:

Let's make sure the battery is in good shape as well.

Also, we should all fuses, the location of the fuses is in the diagrams below.

Check out the diagrams (below). Please let us know what happens.
