check the date of your battery....it should be noted on "knock-off" labels on the top of your battery...replace your battery if older than five....alternator will be put to the task and may fail...clean the 1/0 connection to the chassis with a wirebrush~

I agree with judge_roy, sounds like weak or bad battery and just coincidental to you doing the work, by possibly leaving the key on or doors open and draining the battery. I have had cars that wouldn't start on 11.5 to 12 volts because they can be that temperamental these days. Also, a lot of batteries these days don't always have the date stickers on the top of the batteries, and you may have to take it out of the car to be able to check all four sides of the battery for the manufacture date.
