Hi. I had just purchased a V1 (valentine one) wire connector to the rear view mirror. I accidentally touched the negative to the positive connector when the positive was inserted inside the power rear view mirror (cable picture attached). Now the engine turns on but quickly shuts off. Remotes, nav, radio still work but power windows do not. Not sure if any issue with anti-theft system, main relay or any relay/fuse? Any same experiences and how to fix? Thank you.

From looking at YouTube videos I think that you have an issue with the anti-theft. Engine starts, then stops abrubtly. Is the green key flashing on the dash? That would point you in some direction.

Sounds like a blown fuse. There are lots of them in the vehicle in various places. The labels are not very useful, since many components that are powered by a circuit are not listed. Best bet is to go through all the fuses with a 12 volt test light.
