Did you disconnect the battery if not may have blown a fuse, look under dash and hood for the fuse panel and check and check all electrical connection were put back together tight and recheck your work.

If you didn't touch anything while you did the work then its a separate issue you are having it may have just happened at the same moment....

One reason its best to unhook the negative battery terminal before doing repairs.
