Default Dead Power windows, locks, alarm and No Spark ! Help !!!

Hello !
Here is the problem:
All of the electrical shut down !
I have the following problems:
No power windows, no power locks, no alarm, no remote trunk release, shift indicator on the dash constantly shows all the gear positions regardless of the shifter position, the engine does not start due to no spark.
I pulled driver's side carpet and replaced the CCM. Cut off old plugs because they were corroded, re-soldered pigtail from the replacement CCM. Before the CCM replacement, the alarm would constantly go off and the starter would not engage (shift interlock). Now the alarm is off and the engine cranks over, but all other problems remain.
Already spent hours on the trying to read those retarded track wiring diagrams - they are worthless.

Here is how it died: first the alarm wouldnt stop. Then went power windows and locks. I then took the car to the shop to get the windows/alarm/locks looked at, where I was told that the car does not start??? I DROVE IT THERE ! The mechanics did not touch it, i towed it back home where I replaced the CCM myself. The car is still dead.

I really need some help figuring this car out. Someone please help me !!!!

Even if you replaced the ccm it won't always fix the problem. Usually the joints in the harness corrode. You put a new pig tail on but you need to look farther up the harness to find the bad joints. Alot of times you will also need to remove the tape to find said bad joints. find and fix the corroded joints and all should be better.
