2003 BMW 525i Electric Problems

I recently hardwired a radar detector directly to my fuse box - I used the Automatic Stability Control /ABS fuse to tie into because it was the only fuse that wasn't hot when the car was not running - two days later the electric issues began - now my radio and MID computer don't work, lights that use to flash when I locked the car with remote no longer work and the air conditioner will not work - any idea what I have done??

BTW, I've checked all fuses (glove box and trunk compartment panels) by pulling each one and visibly inspecting as well as verifying operation with a multimeter - no blown fuses were found

If I disconnect the battery, do you think the computer may reset? Or will it possibly do more damage?
