Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. To be honest, without running a diagnostic test, it is hard to tell. This is what you need to do next. Sometimes, it can be just a few things. Other times, it can fry the all the electronics. You should try to take it to the shop to have a scan done on it. They usually cost around 100 dollars. Without the test, it is like trying to find a needle in a hay stack. If you can't, all I can tell you is start testing parts and fuses. Look for any damage wires. If your computer is close to the battery, that may be what is bad. It has a metal shell. That may be the only problem but you just can't tell without the test.

Just replaced the motor in my 91 mr2 and hooked everything back up now as soon as i turn the key to on the motor starts to crank

youve got the wires on the starter wrong. there are usually two small connections on the starter, but only one small wire. if you install wire on wrong one, it grounds without the key being turned to start. check it and swap that wire only. large cable to battery and large connector wire should stay on the large bolt to the solenoid

Sears installed battery with terms. switched...fried my fuse box

If they hooked the battery up backwards, they fried a whole lot more than the fuse box. Probably a couple of fusible links, coulda taken out the computer and a ton of other parts, depending on how fast the fuses blew. Fuses are designed to stop a current SURGE from damaging anything, but NOT current going the wrong way. While they will still blow, the damage may have already been done. 6v53 is right. Make Sears pay!!!
