94 Corolla 1.8L about 175,000 miles. I recently replaced the three belts and the alternator locking bolt. The battery was disconnected during this operation. After re-connecting the battery, the car would not start. Cranks fine, fuel to the cylinders, but no spark. Fuses OK, voltage to distributor OK.
In my haste to get the job finished, I re-connected the battery in reverse order which set off the alarm (factory). This is the only thing I can think of that relates to anything electric or electronic. Or am I the victim of an incredibly coincidental failure of the coil or ignitor?
TIA for any suggestions.
