today i was putting in a battery and when i was taking out the old one i touched the thing that you put hooks on to to take out the motor then it sparked on me. i thought nothing of it and then i went on with the install. now i have no read out of my milage... tack... spedometer.. gas... or temp gauge. is there anyone that could give me some insight on how to fix this?

How in the hell did you hit that with your battery? Does the car still start and run OK?

Checked visually or checked with a meter/putting in new fuses?

I'm not trying to insult your intellegance but did you check fuses under the hood and both drivers side and passenger side?
