The light for the D on the dash board was blinking originally and stopped while I was driving it right before it lost power and after I cut it off it would crank back up.

The compressor clutch wasn't engaging so I tried to bypass the compressor relay using a paper clip to connect the ports where the relay plugs in and there was a spark and it burnt a fuse on the fuse box inside the car and after that is when all the problems started
