First off i installed a amp and sub into the car ran it for a few minutes (without car fully started) and it was fine. Shut car off 4 about a hour or 2 came back and the whole cabin was dead car won't even start. No power cept for a blinkin dash light or 2. Disconnected amp power wires (undid every stereo component i had just tinkered with) and charged battery over night. Still nothin, except now the radio comes on, but i still have no spark and barely any cabin power at all. Any ideas on what i should look for. My fuses r fine except for one that keeps sparking everytime i push it in, but it doesn't blow out. Need a little assistance please.

you have a short to ground somewhere in the new wiring... possibly by the batt cables?

Thanks, i managed to find the ground causing all the trouble. It was a small crack on the underside of my neg battery term. Couldn't be seen from the top. I wonder tho if that is what kept causing my dash (clock, radio, and seatbelts) to short out. Not to mention my sparking fuse box. I'll see soon enough.
