Default HELP!!!! Dead car!!

I needed to remove the fuse panel under the hood to tighten my tower bar and 2 of the wires that go the the fuse box touched. They made a quick spark and now my car is completely dead! Anyone have any idea which fuse/relay I would have tripped to cause this so I can replace it? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Probably the main power fuse. On a GD it's in the fuse box under the hood. Turn the lid over and there will be a list of fuses and relays. The main fuse is square and looks like a relay.

Anything not working like lights radio etc?

I got it, it was the 80A fuse attached to the battery terminal. After checking the fuse box under the hood and finding no issues, I remembered the fuse under the red cap attached to the battery. Popped the cap off and sure enough, one blown fuse.. quick trip to autozone and I was good to go, thanks for getting back to me ;-)
