so last night I was installing a new radio and 2 wires touched made a pop and made my right taillight, dash lights, sunroof and my lock button all stop working I checked the engine fuse box replaced a fuse and everything went back to normal except my locking and sunroof anyways now when I flip my key there is about 2 seconds of clicking from the engine bay then it stops but when I turn over the car to start it it will stall out and shut off unless I constantly give it gas and I have no clue in the world what it could be any tips?

Did you check the fuses in the fuse panel at the left end of the dash?

The clicking when you turn the ignition to ON is probably the motor for your idle air control (IAC). It's not unusual for it to make a fast clicking sound when you turn the ignition ON.

If it drives ok but just doesn't idle correctly, I'd try driving it for a while and give the ECM a chance to re-learn. If that doesn't work, I'd follow the test and troubleshooting steps for the IAC. It's at tearstone.com section 13A-588. You'll need a multimeter.
