When the computer gets zapped, virtually any part can be damaged, including RAM, disk drives, connectors on cabinet (eg USB), PCI cards, etc.

Usually the CPU stays safe, as the motherboard blows before CPU.

When you get this kind of damage is always better taking the computer to a repair shop, instead of DIY, as there is need to test all parts.

Ensure that you assembled Motherboard, CPU , and heath-sink properly.

Try first starting the computer with a minimal set of devices plugged to the motherboard, with only PSU, RAM (1 module), Video card if needed and CPU/Fan.

If there is no power at all then it is likely a bad PSU, if it starts but not screen, it is either a bad RAM or the motherboard had not been assembled properly, or had been damaged during assemblage.

Cougar was hit by lightining and now when you get to 3000 rpms it disconnects the transmission

With a scanner you can drive the car and watch the data to see what is missing for transmission shifting. But struck by lighting tells me that POSSIBLY the diodes in the computer have been compromised . or a internal mechanical fault inside the transmission . THEORY the car revs to 3000 and goes into neutral this means the shift has occurred by the next gear is not holding by pressure (that solenoid is not working) or a internal leak or the band servo has applied but the band does not hold

Lightining sign on dash mean

If the red light dims severely or goes out when you try to start it you have a flat battery, highly likely if that red symbol has been on while the motor has been running because the alternator hasn't been charging. It could mean you have a broken drive belt but that would also mean no power steering, AC or coolant pump drive so that would have been obvious fairly quickly.

you have been hit by power surge. most likely the problem is in the control box that controls the pump. Need to call local plumber or service company to take a look at the system.
Verify that all circuit breakers are on and stay on after being reset before calling service tech.
