As much as we may want to help you, your problem would need to diagnosed with a hands-on inspection. After replacing the harness, you'll have to go through the fuses, fusible links, relays, computer modules, and especially the grounds to check everything is working. There must also be a reason WHY the harness caught fire in the first place, and that problem will also have to be fixed.

If it sputters and dies when hitting the brakes, check the IAC valve (idle air control), it provides air to the engine when the gas pedal is not being used. If turning the headlights on kills the car, check the alternator's output, it may be too low. Also test coil, in fact the coil is a prime suspect as you mention no spark.
