Oh my bad. Sorry I should have read your OP more carefully. I would try disconnecting the battery for 10-15 minutes and see if that resets it. More than likely you shorted a circuit somewhere.

Disconnecting the battery, waiting, and then hooking back up *should* fix the issue. Essentially you are just rebooting the car. So if disconnecting the battery works then the shorted circuit issue is fixed. If it doesn't work than it's still shorted.
