I think you may want to check the starter,when battery,slid may have arched,and cylinoid all so,other word,s shorted starter out.

All so if you haven,t all ready,check the fuse,s.


If you hit something that hard to knock a battery out of the tray then it is possible you knocked the the distributor out of time. Check he timing and make sure the distributor didn't move.
