Help! My Audi A3 won't start anymore - Fuse issue...?

I have an 2007 Audi A3 that now won't start. Originally I was just trying to solve the problem of the horn not working, so I checked the fuse box located under the hood. I located the F5 fuse location for the horn and inspected the blue 15 AMP fuse. All looked good, but just to test I removed another 15 AMP fuse and inserted it in the F5 horn fuse location. The horn still did not work so I placed the 15 AMP fuse that I pulled for testing purposes back into the slot where I thought I originally had removed it from. The next day I went to start the car and it wouldn't turn on or turn over.

So I went back and inspected the fuses and discovered I had place the 15 AMP fuse that I pulled into the F27 slot which is suppose to be blank instead of the F28 slot for the Motor Module. I thought I could simply move the fuse over to the proper location and all would be solved, but that wasn't the case. When moving the fuse back to the proper location there was a slight spark and the car still did not turn over and start. I inspected the fuse to see if it blew, but all looked good and is still all intact. Now I'm stumped to how why the car will not start.

Any suggestions? Did I some how short out or break a circuit by inserting a fuse into the wrong slot?
