Default radio acc wire dead, no start now

I have an operator created electrical problem.
I was swapping out the original radio with dead screne to an aftermarket one and shorted the acc radio power(ignition) with ither pin 1 or 6 of the black power connector. The wire went dead and now the car won't start. It does turn over.all the dash lights up as it should. Heat coils come on as they usual.
I have ohm'd out each of the fuses under the relays. And even swapped them one at a time with a known good one. been searching posts but i can't find anything related to the acc wire. Please help.

what do the wires on pin 6 and 1 go to?

Rare? It's one of two, and at this point one of one that's in original condition. Any pictures? Can you share the VIN?

If the engine is "sideways", it is not a B5.
