Turn the key... Just kidding,now this happen to me a few times,you have to tell to yoursel,if the car was starting before you change the timing belt,and after doesnt start its something that you have done. Or the timing its off,my first guess. Or some sensor its disconnected,crankshaft probably. Good luck
