Default i screwed up...please help me..535i wont start

guys...i was working on cleaning my blower motor and i removed the blowermotor. there was a red power wire feeding the electrical box on top of the blower motor. i am not sure what that is for. i removed the wire and i even covered it up with electrical tape but it touched the ground rod and caused a small spark...i suspect it blew some fuse.
I started getting drivetrain stop error right after and now my car would not start. i measured voltage too but i dont see any voltage on that wire.
Also my blower motor is not running...the controls show fan is on and on full but no motor running.
i have no idea where it is being fed from. there are so many fuse and i dont want to remove each one of them to check.
can someone guide me where is the fuse located.
i made a small video on what i am talking about. i will appreciate any help

2012 535i

Guys I was able to fix the issue...

If you need to replace your final stage unit (blower motor resistor) If you follow the following video, you will be able to get to the final stage unit. in my case i didn't need to change it. While you are in there most likely your foam is also damaged. you can use the following video to get those fixed your self. Remember to disconnect Battery before doing this work.
