Jeep Died While Driving

Well i was driving it today and it wasnt running the best due to the carb so i unplug the electric choke WELLLLLL i forgot to put the wire up outta the way so while i was driving it groung out and killed my jeep. Ive looked at every fuse and checked the battery but it wont turn over. The weird thing is the headlights are still working but thats it. Any clue guys thanks

id start by checking the relays first if the relays are good. then trace the wire back for the electric choke i can see the choke being the problem here though. are you sure nothing else grounded out. but it could be the auto shut down relay causing it

off the top of my head no but their all next to your battery. so try and switch the horn relay for others and see if you get any juice to the starter. it could be a bad ignition to
