Question headlights, standing , turn and flood lights out. help please.

I had a massive electrical surge after a blown battery.
All the lights including the side markers blew. I've replaced all.
I also couldn't turn the wipers off after that event.I have relaced the wiper relay and that corrected that. I've noticed other relays
in the same area. Would all of my light challenges be associatd to
a relay? Please help. This is a 1976 280 with 64k miles.

post surg troubles

Thanks for the replies thus far. I should of mentioned that I
had numerous blown fuses as well. Those were the first things I replaced. That was not a unwise question however , I've missed the simple and obvious in the past. I'm hopng this to be a relay fault (simple fix) but where my ignorance is greatest in not knowing the if routing of the fog , headlights ,standing and turn are all through one or any relay.
