Vapor lock is when the gasoline in the fuel system gets so hot that it boils away before it reaches the engine. So the engine won't run. Did you disconnect the negative (-) battery cable before starting the repair? If not, check your fuses. Sounds like the vent valve for the EVAP system is not opening when you shut off the engine.
