Garage
am i this dumb...welding on car...CDI not working

so i have been doing a ton of body work on the car and came across two small rust spots about size of dime...i wanted to cut them out and replace with new metal...

i pulled the car out of the garage and grind them off, it was a nice sunny day so i decided to leave it in the driveway...

hook up my MIG welder, and go to town...

the spots are on the quarter panel back by the CDI...

i got done the repairs, i always keep a rag in a bucket of water and ice to put on car after each weld...

turn key to pull car back in and NOTHING from CDI....

would something like this fry the CDI? or did my CDI just die on me...

car turns over, battery is super strong, both fuel pumps are running.
