You probably STILL have damaged wires either inside or in engine compartment. Check to see if any fuses blown under hood

No lights on dash come on either. Going to check ignition. Sensor in exhaust is not connected. It ran for maybe 3 minutes after we did the wires before it just shut off. No fuel no spark

Then check that wire or wires going to the gauges there will be one for each instrumentyou more than likely have wires melted together inside harness under conduit and tape. If you are lucky you didn't burn up the ecm or another module. See if you can scan for codes that may tell you what problem is if you can get a reading.

Will do. Dealership mechanic told me as a rule a fire where wires melted to frame they total it. The fact it ran for 3-4 minutes really means nothing. So its back under it for me. Think I'll sell it for what I can get.
