Check all the fuses. But could be a fusible link. Which may require additional diagnosis

you most likely fried your igniter. my girlfriend put the battery in backwards on my 88 toy pickup and after that no spark. the igniter went. the igniters are pricey so i would check for one in the boneyards. if you have no spark that is moist likely the problem.
