Question Balt Won't Start...

I was messing with wiring audio equipment to my fuse box inside the car, and blew fuses. Even though all the fuses have been replaced, not only do my wipers not work, but now the car won't start, the security dash light is lighting up, and i don't have a security system.. its like I fried something and the car thinks I'm trying to steal it. Um... help? What do i do, i need my car to run

I didn't check the fuses under the hood... I'm going to do that right now. And yeah I think I caused the car to keep itself from starting. I have full power though. Where are the relays? WOuld that be something I can pick up and replace tomorrow?

If you can feel the relay click, it is working (97% of the time). If you fried a ton of fuses, it wouldn't be out of the question to assume you fried some circuits too.

My turbo lag is your courtesy head start.

Thank you guys for pointing out something obvious that I overlooked blew the engine bay ignition fuse... now it runs and the airbag sensor works again too, I forgot to check the wipersbut the engine bay fuse for the wiper is fine.
