Default Almost done with my project a little more help please!

Hi Everyone, I have the car running pretty good now. Here are some of the issues that i still have.
Any cheap fix for the fan clutch?
I was messing with the center consol and the window lockout button hit metal and sparked and now I don't have power windows and the gauges don't work any more.
I have no dash lights.
I can't get the idel to slow down without plugging the hole at the rear of the drivers side intake air cleaner that runs to the metering valve. I adjust the screw on the valve and the idel doesn't change.
The climate controls do nothing, they worked before I had the short at the center

Any help that you can give would be great, thanks so much in advance.

I think you should check the fuses! they should have blown before doing any major damage, as for the idle, it sounds you have a vacumn leak check for a hissing or whistling or look at all the hoses to make sure that they are not dry rotted. Good luck

Also there is NO cheap fix for the fan clutch, it has to be replaced if it is seizing up or making screching noises - I had one go on my '80 XJ6 some time around 1990. Clearly you can buy a used one but it could be defective and/or have come off a high miler have a short life.
