92 Pathfinder engine turning over but not starting

Hey so I was replacing my front fenders and when I tried to start it up, one of the 3 fusible links blew on my positive battery connection and smoke was coming from around the battery, so I replaced it and now my engine will turn over but it cant start, and there's no power going to my fuel pump and I have no spark. I have power going to everything else (Lights, fan, stereo, locks... etc, all still work)... Any ideas on whats happening?

    Fuel pump relay? Or maybe an issue with the ECM not telling the relay to turn on? No power to the fuel pump make me think the no start is due to no fuel, but you also say no spark. Is that an assumption or did you test for spark?

    Some of our more expert forums members should be of more help.

    You might scan for trouble codes to give you at least some data on where to go from here. With no spark and no fuel, you're probably going to need a wiring diagram and a probe and start testing right at the PCM.

    Check ignition relay, may be fried before the link blew.. located driver side on top of the fuse bank. Last relay to the right...
