Repair the short and other wires which may have melted in the area. Check all the fuses. If still no start you will have to begin checking the ignition and running circuits to find the fault.

Also check electronic components installed on your year vehicle. Electronics do not react well to reversing the polarity.

this exact same this happened to me- I am troubleshooting it now- did you figure out a solution?
