Question type: Maintenance & Repair

hello all, i needed to get some help with my car. i changed the thermastat today and after i put every thing back together the car did not start everything else is fine. what i mean by that is the windows roll up and down no problem, the lights and horn works. so when i turn the ignition to the on position there is a small click should and that is it. the dashboard panel lights work just fine. could i have disconnected something when i was working on the thermostat? any and all advise will surely be appreciated thanks for our help.

Can not think of anything that would cause the vehicle not to start by changing the thermostat even if you left something unplugged it still should start and maybe the check engine light would have come on. Remove the battery terminal connections and clean then reinstall making sure that they are nice and tight.
