Hey Guys. Yesterday i was working on my EL when just as i was finishing up, i droped vice grips into the engine bay down onto the starter motor which caused a big spark. Silly me didnt disconnect the battery so now i need to know what i have done. When i turn the key nothing happens except for one click near the battery. That is pretty much it so any help would be appreciated.

the single wire (trigger) may have come off the starter.
