Default Fuses

I think I may have blown some fuses while installing my remote starter (crimping tool contacted metal, oops). My climate control panel seems to no longer be working. When I turn the **** that makes it a/c, defrost, etc, I can hear the compressors kicking on. However, there is no air that blows from any vents (unless at high speeds small amounts come through). The rear defrost button doesn't work, and the air is always hot for what little is coming through. So I'm assuming blower motor and climate control are on same fuse.

My ABS light is also on and my turn signals are out.

I have a FSM, but I can't find a good diagram of where the fuses for these would be. Can anyone tell me the fuse(*) for these items are? Please be as specific as possible. Pictures are preferred.

Also, if there is a good place either in the FSM or the Haynes manual for an easy to read fuse diagram for future use I'd greatly appreciate that.

Thanks in advance.

Three locations for your fuse blocks. Drivers side, just below the steering wheel. Passenger side, down under dash, next to right kick panel. Engine bay, right under windshield.
Do you still have the owners manual? It should tell you where all your fuses are at.

If you don't have your owners manual, have one of ours. They are free!

So i checked all of the plastic see-through fuses and I didn't find any that were blown in any locations. How do I tell if the aluminum ones are bad? Are there circuit breakers or something else I'm overlooking? I seriously doubt I actually damaged the components.

I wonder if you popped a fuseable link wire while under the dash hooking your remote start up?

What do these look like / how do I tell if they are popped?

Alright.. sorry to resurface this thread, but my car had stopped running so I had to fix that before I could look at electrical problems. Now that I'm running again.. hopefully we can investigate these problems a little further.

The problems I'm having are:

No turn signals
No hazard lights
No cruise control
No air through vents
No rear defrost
ABS light

Aso, initially the radio/clock still worked. Now the radio still works, but the clock / station display is blank after fixing the no start problem.

Maybe some more I'm forgetting. I'll add them in if I think of any.

Kris...did you ever check you grounds for corrosion? https://www.gmforum.com/showthread.php?t=278980

You've got way to many different electrical problems going on here.

I checked the main ones but I'm sure there are some I missed. I'll have to check the ground bus you just linked to. These all surfaced after the remote start install. The only grounds that were physically touched during those were the two in the driver'* kickpanel. I'm not sure what those are all linked to. I'll keep looking for bad grounds though.
