Did you leave the key in the ignition switch when you disconnect the battery?




Oh that's the problem. Put the KEY IN YOUR POCKET. Disconnect the battery for about a half hour (charge it up) then try to start it. MAYBE that will do the trick. Now don't do that again.

I wasn't very detailed earlier but I was putting after market speakers and amp in it after I was done I started it once it was ok then I tried restarting it and I could only turn over and now it won't even do that ...do you think it could be the anti theft?

Are the battery terminals tight?
