I cleaned my boost solanoid yesterday and accidently earthed the positive terminal with a spanner. Now she wont start! All Im getting is clicking from around the tps/throttle body on acc, and one louder click when I hit ignition. Ive checked all the fuses and relays that I know of and they seem fine. Bought a new battery, no difference! Do not want to have it towed to an auto elec! Any Ideas?

If you shorted the battery out then it should be something simple like a fuseable link to the starter
