Indicators don't work any more!

Today I was trying to wire in a rear facing camera to my dash camera. Experimentally I wedged the power wire for the camera in under the reverse light bulb just to check if it would work. I had disconnected the entire left side rear lights bulb cluster from the main loom connectors.

I reconnected everything and there was power to the camera but the reversing light did not work nor did the indicators and I got the Check Airbag warning on the dash. The indicators do work in hazard light mode.

HELP?!

All seem intact but now, after removing each one to check, one at a time, and replacing the car will not start. It does not even try to start. Headlights and hazard lights work but there is no power to start. The indicator light on the Start button does not come on, the remote locking does not work.

Maybe the car went into some kind of emergency mode thinking there was electrical fault and unlocked all doors so people could get out. 

Maybe disconnect the Battery for 10 mins or so hoping it will clear out, just a thought.

Ok, so after taking it away to a local independent Toyota specialist who was totally stumped but whose diagnostics strongly suggested the immobiliser ECU was fried somehow, I talked with a technician at main Toyota dealer. Told him the whole story and he suggested that I check that I replaced every fuse in the right sockets after inspecting them. So I went to the garage and I and the mechanic did that and found I had replaced one fuse in the wrong slot and hey presto the car started!

However, I still don't have working indicators (though they work in Hazard mode) or reversing light! Local man has referred me to a local auto electrician. Car is home for the moment. WEIRD!

Got the same problem with no indicators, reverse light, airbag light and no heating. Did you every get this sorted?
