Replaced the idler pulley or tensioner and the drive belt and now the engine will not start
1996 SAAB 900
The idler pulley or tensioner broke, so it started shredding the drive belt. I replaced both and now the engine wont start.

It sounds like you may have an accessory that has locked up, can you remove the belt and see if the engine starts?
Please let us know what you find so it will help others.
