    Sounds like you got a short-circuit somewhere. Check all your connections. Make sure all crimps, splices, solder jobs, etc. are either wrapped well with electrical tape or heat shrinked. Don't be using wire nuts now!

    Shouldn't be an issue. If it was serious enough, the fuse will blow. But continue to jostle the voltage around with shorts or a bad ground and it COULD become an expensive issue!
