my 2002 saab 9-5 2.3t

A month and a half ago i put a new starter on my saab on my own and when doing so i did not unplug the negative line On the battery at the moment of me installing the started I got 3 electrical sparks.. I got to fix the starter.. but 2 days After that I noticed electrical problems with my car and on my radio it indicated break light failure. .had break light failure for 2 weeks. .. then this morning I go to turn on my car and I hear a sound on the right side of the engine belt for like 3 or 4 minutes the sound stopped and then less than a minute i started smelling a heavy oder of burning plastic I turned the engine off and tried turning it back on and now my car won't start . If any one knows about this problem or had this problem on you saab? please help . Thank you

First thing to do is remove the belt or whats left of it. Could be jamed so tinght the starter motor cant turn the motor because part of the belt is off and jammed into the pulley. Brake light filure with no actual failure is ususally the orange relay.
