Check your fuses. May have blown something when the belt went flying around the engine compartment. Look around under the hood. May have unplugged a connection also. If you can't see anything, check for fuel and spark. May be your crankshaft positioning sensor. Check out this short video: http://www.youtube.com/watch? v=pUMGFnK29B8
