you prob blew a bunch of fuses, Autozone has a bunch or assored packs

first bad ground at trunk light,like other poster,blown fuses,it could have also shorted the alt.

I'm experiencing similar problems. Mine has electrical problems such as: the lock clicker doesn't work anymore since a mechanic replaced my starter. Also, the interior lights will not work, the radio has to be re-coded every time the key is turned off. Electric locks only work when the engine is running.
