If it was the copper tape located in the upper left under the screen that wraps under the board, that goes to your power button and volume buttons. I speak from experience because I tore the same one when fixing my daughter's iPod. If you, or someone you know is good at soldering, you may repair it. If not, then it's bad news, I'm afraid.
Check your owners manual to locate the fuse boxes, and the location of the specific fuses. When I had that issue with a vehicle (97 Jeep) it was one of the tiny fuses located in the fuse box under the hood.
