I was messing around under drivers dash with a mixing door actuator and then moved car up. It has not started since.

1. did you go through all the fuses to make sure you didnt ground out something while under the dash?
2. would be odd for it to happen at the same time, but a bad crank positon sensor will cause the motor to just crank over and over and never start.
3. can you hear the fuel pump prime? (key "on" listen for a buz from rear)

Go back under the dash by the mixing door and see what wires you bumped. Push wiring harnesses around and try to start it again. Good luck! frown
