My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.
From what you have described here this sounds like the central electronics control module was damaged as some of these wires feed to the central electronics control module and jumping incorrect wiring will short it out internally with it needing replaced.
Thanks Pete
