Default Saturn SW1 won't start

Somehow I think that I shorted the security system. I was trying to reprogram the RKE and I accidentally brushed the paperclip against one of the other pinson the OBDII port and shorted something. The RKE transmitter, and power locks don't work and the car won't start. Everything else with the car seems to be working. lights, radio, etc...

I remember there was a way to jumper the ins in the OBD2 port and the Check Engine Light would flash the code. Which pins should I jumper? Is there any way to test and see what's damaged via the OBD2 port??

I'm hoping that whatever I shorted was fused. I don't have a Saturn '97 SW1 fuse diagram & can't seem to locate which fuse protects the RKE or car security system or rke. I have removed the back seat and side panels and I can access the the RKE Car Security System unit. Is there a fuse there that protects the RKE. Any ideas?

OBD-2 does not work by shorting pins.

You have popped a fuse. Check fuses in both fuse boxes. Check BODY fuse in inside fuse box and if the chime is not working then check the CHIME fuse.

Gee I really hope so that it was just the BODY fuse that I popped. I did check the inside fuses but they all looked ok. I'll check the inside fuses again and the outside fuses in the am. All I noticed was that the top dome light, the powerlocks, and the RKE, didn't work and the car wouldn't start. All other lights, and dashboard lights, fuel pump, and chime worked. Thanks for the suport!

What year is this car? Never mind, found it.

Just replace the BODY fuse. When the dome lamp works you have fixed the problem.
