Fused accessory wire?

I was finishing up a simple project and bumped a wrench on the horn relay. I heard a quick pop at the relay, but also over near the battery. Now I have no power to dome light, headlights, ignition, etc. I assume there is an in-line fuse somewhere that powers the fuseblock, but don't see it. Can anyone tell me what popped by the battery and how to find it? Or, if there is something else I burned, let me know what it might be. Thanks

There's a fusible link near the battery, usually tied to the little junction block/screw on the radiator support behind the battery if I remember right.

Re: Fused accessory wire?

Sounds like you dead shorted the main feed and cooked a fusible link. Look for discolored links by the main junction block behind the battery and the horn relay.
