Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2000 windstar wont start. I changed plugs and wires but messed up the sequence tried to start and only puffed smoke from throttle body once. Corrected the sequence,now wont crank. Could I have blown the starter? Also theft light blinks could that be the problem?
