Start with battery connections and then see if everything in the fuse box has power. If not, a fusible link probably burned up. Also check the 2 wire plug near the battery, that supplies power to the activator on the starter. You may have knocked it loose doing the filter.

Just enough power to break everything behind the crankshaft.

At the back of the engine on the left side are 2 large connectors, a black one and a gray one. What you have described has to do with that black connector. Unplug it and reseat it, see if that helps.

Those 2 connectors are the main interface between the engine, transmission and the body. Disconnecting the fuel heater could have disturbed that connector. The same one the starter is wired through along with the fuel solenoid.
