92' LX: stereo,dome light, cruise,mirrors dont work.

I recently picked a 92' LX 5.0 5-speed "project" car. It was pretty grimey under the hood, so i sprayed WD-40 on all the electrical connections and left the car running while I power washed the engine bay. While doing this, the passenger side headlight somehow got water on it, and it blew up.

Before this happened, the radio and dome light both worked fine, but now neither work at all. As for the cruise control and the power mirrors, I didn't try them until after washing the engine bay, so I don't know if something shorted out when the bulb blew up and contributed to them not working or what?

Any insight to these electrical problems would be great. Thanks in advance.

Check fuses. The stereo, dome light, and power mirrors are all on one fuse. The cruise is on a different fuse.

All the fuses are fine, that was the first thing I checked after the headlight blew.
