Good job troubleshooting and fixing the problem yourself. Now you can once again sleep at night.
Just went through the same thing tracing out the wiring on my methanol injection system that suddenly went dead. Ended up being a broken wire tied into the fuel pump circuit. Could have lost a piston from that one.

These types of threads are so important, and Google picks them up.

A very similar thread got me out of a jam when jumper cables were hooked up backwards on my mom's PT Cruiser....in that case there's a main fuse that blows and once replaced it's good to go.

I also just had a Tech cross the battery cables on my 1979 L82 Corvette. I plan on trying a new battery first. Pre ECM and all stock except for a Clifford alarm. Any tips would be appreciated. Losing sleep in Chicago.

Wow a frustrating and expensive momentary lapse in attention. Sorry it happened.

Like others have said great that you followed up to a conclusion, so many people do not and we are left wondering what happened.

Hope it is all sorted for you now.

If the Diodes worked properly they should save components. Granted some traces could be burnt.
