Hello grumpypapa,

This is a fine example of why fuses are good. After correcting the wiring problem, simply replace the fuse. An owner's manual will tell you exactly where to find it. If you don't have an owner's manual, try looking in Chapter 12 for the locations of the fuse boxes (there's usually one in the dash area and one under the hood) and there's usually a legend for the box on the cover.
