Default Jumped B+ and GND

Well last night I was wrapping up a long day of working on my 95. I was attempting to adjust the idle by jumping TEN and GND but while I was putting the jumper in it moved over and hit B+ and sparked off of GND. Now I have CEL codes 8 and 1. One is ignition pulse or(IGF?) signal, and 8 is air flow meter. The car doesn't run any different than it should, no signs of the air flow meter being fault.

I plan to disconnect the battery and see if I can erase the codes and try again. Im asking for any info on this as I cant find much on the topic. I guess Im one of the few if any that have done this.

The car is a mostly stock 1995 leather/gold package. Yesterday I did a shifter turret rebuild, steering wheel replacement, oil change, FM frame rails and thats it. The car does have a cheep(hot air intake) but its been on for a few weeks.

Meh, I did that once, and other than a nasty burn on my finger, everything was fine. It blew one fuse in my case and all was well.

I used a paper clip and it melted right through it. I think we have all done it at some point. LOL.

Did you trip a fuse? I know I tripped at least one fuse when I made that mistake a while back.
