I have many electrical failures occur all at once: unable to shift, no dash instrument gauges working, tail lights out, air conditioner out, radio out, power windows & door locks out, wipers out
This happened after I pulled the battery out to charge it. I put it back in and
used the key fob to disarm the security system. Initially the car wouldn't
even start but I located the multiport fuel injection system fuse that was
blown and I replaced it and the car started; but then the electrical issues
appeared immediately upon starting the car. None of which were issues
prior to removing the car battery.
Check all the other fuses.
Fuses under dash and under the hood too.
All those items are also connected to the Body Control Module. Go through all of your electrical system - fuses, relays, fusible links, harness and grounds. The BCM may need to be reflashed if it took a spurious jolt.
This normally doesn't happen to an 01, but as you stated it blew a fuse and that says voltage spike, I hope you didn't disconnect a battery cable with the engine running, if so the chances that you totally fried the BCM has increased dramatically, at this point in time the best thing to do is to take it too the dealer and have it checked out, they will be able to,tell you if a reflash will work of it is totally fried and possibly what else happened.
