Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.It sounds like you have a voltage feed going to the ignition coils that should not be there. That is the only reason that you would have a burnt wire going to the coil. Is the coil(s) still okay? Normally if you feed voltage to them it will burn them out and they will no longer work. This is most likely the reason that you were blowing fuses as well. There is something in the system that is feeding 12 volts to the ignition coils when it shouldn't be, the first place I would look would be the ignition switch. It is weird however that everything was working fine up until you got stuck and then this starts happening.
