Need some help! Electrical issue?

Hi, earlier today I started my 04 4runner with the remote starter and proceeded outside shortly after. Decided to finish hooking up the hardwire for my dash camera so I used the remote to turn it back off.

Installed the wire which took 2 minutes and bam it won't start. I have all lights but won't turn over, later noticed I've lost my radio and keyless entry too. The remote starter will lock and unlock the car but yhe factory fobs don't work. Tried both and nothing.

Checked fuses and all seem good.

Any ideas? Thanks!

Without any pictures or knowlegde how you hard wired it, I would start with your wiring. How did you hard wire it and what did you hard wire it to? Did you go to a fuse or did you tap an existing wire? Have you disconnected the wire you installed and see if that lets the vehicle start again?

Maybe some pictures or where/how it was wired would help

It was just a fuse tap into the fuse box by the dash. Same as I did on other vehicles and on this one before . I took it back out as soon as it didn't start. I did leave the ground connected but it's just behind a bolt on the body behind the plastic kick panel.

I can take some pics if needed but it's disconnected now. Takes less then a min to do it

I plugged it into fuse 37 power outlet. Once the car didn't start I took it back out.

*insert facepalm emoji* so when I went to install it started raining so I started rushing. I saw a bolt and started undoing it and quickly realized it wasn't on the body so used another one. Apparently it was to the harness or something because it disabled the ignition, radio, front and rear wipers, turn signals and heater controls.

Fixed now! Now back to trying to figure out why the horn doesn't work!

Nope. This started a year ago when the truck was off the road. I decided to see if the horns from it would work plug and play onto my rav4 since those horns suck. They didn't but when I plugged them back in they stopped working. The fuse looked fine but I honestly haven't taken anymore time to figure it out but need to! I'm in NY and the amount of people I need to beep at on a daily basis is ridiculous lol

They worked before it, didn't after all within a 10 min time frame
