Unhappy Fire !!!!!!!!!!!!!

LAST NIGHT MY GTA TRANSMISSION LINE RUPTURED DUE TO EXCESSIVE WEAR FROM THE STEERING KNUCKLE RUBBING AGAINST IT, AND IT CAUGHT FIRE. IN THE PROCESS THE BATTERY GROUNDED ITSELF OUT AS OUT MANUVERED AROUND TO GET THE CAR OUT OF TRAFFIC. I GOT THE TRANSMISSION LINE LEAK FIXED, AND I GOT A NBEW BATTERY POST, BUT I THINK THAT I STILL HAVE A BAD GROUND WIRE THAT BURNED THROUGH, OR SOMETHING BECAUSE NOW WHEN THE CAR IS RUNNING, AND I HIT THE BRAKES, OR TURN ON THE LIGHTS OR DO ANYTHING THAT WILL TAKE SOME BATTERY POWER, THEN MY WHOLE DIGITAL DASH FLICKKERS OR EITHER GOES DIM OR OUT, AND AS I TURN WHATEVER IT WAS I TURNED ON OFF, IT WILL TRY TO COME BACK INTO PLAY. I NOTICED THE GROUND STRAP FROM THE MOTOR TO THE CHASIS AT THE REAR OF THE MOTOR (THAT GOES TO THE FIREWALL) IS BURNED ITO NOW. COULD THIS BE MY PROBLEM? mIGHT MY BATTERY BE DEAD NOW, AFTER THE POST GROUNDED OUT TO THE METAL BODY. ANY HELP WITH THIS, WILL BE GREATLY APPRECIATED.
THNKS IN ADVANCE,
MRPITTS II
