Car won't start after changing headlight

Asked by May 07, 2017 at 09:36 PM about the 2012 Chevrolet Malibu LS FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

After changing the headlight on my car, I tried
turning the engine on and it will not start. I tried
jumping the car with cable and still a no go. Even
tried turning the keys counterclockwise, clockwise,
and counterclockwise again and still won't start.
Any solutions to this problem would be greatly
appreciated. Thanks.

Make sure its all the way up in park, then try in neutral. Try checking fuses under dash & hood and grounds from engine to frame. May have a fuse at the computer. Check relays. Discover if you do not have spark or fuel as to know which way to go with diagnosing.

Did you disconnect the battery before you changed the headlight?
