Damaged wire from Thermostat now AC won't run.

The Thermostat cable got damaged when I was out of town, and I don't know how. When I came back I saw two ends of cable one coming from the house and one from the outside unit. I assumed that the wires were just straight through and connected them back together. After connecting them I wrapped all of the connections in Rubber galvanizing tape and then electrical tape to keep moisture out. Unfortunately at this point I didn't check to see if the AC would turn On. It didn't when I eventually checked, is there a breaker/fuse that is installed from the Thermostat wires into the unit? I have a Trane Model #4TWX4042B1000AA.
