    You need to find fuse box and start by checking fuses...
    This may help:

    Doubt any fuses blown, shorting battery to ground will hurt battery but not fuses.
    Shorting after fuse will blow fuse, not shorting before fuse.
    Not sure on your other issue(s).

    P,S, As you probably know now, always remove ground first then positive.

    Nah, I would not go that far... electrons are elusive at times :)
