john deere f525 mower problems

I have a 1994 jd f525 mower, while servicing, I dropped a wrench and yes with my luck it landed on both + & - terminals of the battery and gave me a show. Now when I try to start it I Keep blowing fuses. When I turn the key on, the cluster lights lite up, but when I push the brake in, and turn the key to start I can here the 15 amp fuse pop--(it is the 2nd fuse up from the bottom(of 4 total fuses) on the fuse panel). Any info would sure be appreciated.

Odd... shorting across the battery should just short the battery and have no effect on the rest of the system. Try unplugging the solenoid wire (I think it's a purple wire plugged onto the starter solenoid) and see if it still blows the fuse. If so, backtrack the purple wire to the switches and see if or where it is pinched, melted, or otherwise shorted.
