Default Amp lead shorted out, now car won't start!

Okay, so my positive lead from the battery to my amps touched the chassis of the car, and burned out the fuse while I was on a delivery. Stupid me didn't secure the amp to the car. I got back to Domino's, shut off the car, and tried to start it back up again for another delivery. It started, but it took 2 tries, and it didn't sound right. I went on the delivery without shutting off the car, came back, and had to start it up again. When I turned the key, the accesories came on, but when I tried to start it, nothing happened. The second time I turned the key, the accessories didn't come on, and still wouldn't start. (of course) Soo, I'm going back with a multimeter to try and see if I can figure out what's wrong. Could it be the ignition, or the starter? This sucks. Please help me out. Click the image to open in full size.

oh, and come to think of it, it smelled like something was burning inside the car right after it shorted out.

test the voltage on your battery. a short to the chassis will put out massive current. it could be dead or damaged.
