Big Problem, NEED HELP

I have a 1996 BMW 328i. When i came home from deployment a family member tried to jump my car with a power generator. In this process the radio and headlights dont work now. Apparently there were sparks and smoke from the radio consul. Any idea what kind of problems and repair costs im looking at?

That would seem like a serious power overload. Sorry about that. But a power generator may well have the wrong voltage 110, instead of 12.
