Back ground events the serpentine belt broke as my wife was leaving for work about a block from home she turned around and made it back home so I got a new belt an while installing it found the water pump bearings were shot so I put on a new water pump with the belt and went to start the car and nothing happens except the dash board lights up and the little chime starts chiming and I am able to turn the headlights on. During the water pump installation I removed the negative battery cable along with the upper motor mount and the alternator to make room for the new water pump and belt everything went back together smoothly.
I think I still had the key in the on position in the ignition when I pulled the battery cable off because I saw a small spark between the cable end and the battery post.
have the same problem?
