Sounds like the system shorted out, check all your wires for exposed inside wiring, If you have a circuit tester it would be great. Battery terminals sometimes get corroded. Check those. Turn your lights on, see if the work, brake lights etc. Check under the dash, someone may have tried to hot wire it. That's the best I can tell you.
