The guy is not a qualified electrician. He should not have done that.
We have checked all the fuses, they are ok
Is the engine running now?
Did you check the charging of the alternator? You need a voltmeter to do that.
It is not running, no spark in d plug, when ignition is on, the vehicle with a key logo don't appear on the dashboard. It is only the ABS, battery and oil logo that appears
Remove the PCM and check the circuitboard for signs of shorting and burnt smell.
I have done that, there is no smell of burnt and no shorting
Let us start all over again with the basics.
Which engine do you have?
Do you have a voltmeter or test light?
Does the Check Engine Light comes on when ignition switch is turned on?
V4, test lamp, engine check light don't on when ignition is on
Attached are the PCM schematics.
At the PCM, turn ignition switch on and ground terminal # 2 (Blue) with a test light and note if the MIL comes on.
Turn O/D on/off and note if the indicator in dash works.
If answer is NO to both above, check Meter Fuse (15 A ) underdash.
