Hi. Okay, so I have to explain how it got to this point to see if it’s messed up anywhere. The serpentine belt fell off due to the belt being messed up before I got it. Then the tensioner broke so I had to get that fixed as well. Had to put new radiator fluid in it. Then put a new belt on. Now a new battery. And now it won’t start. I can get it to turn over but it won’t fully start. I don’t know if something happened in between the times they were fixed. But I really want to know so I can fix the problem myself. If anyone can help me in some way that would be great. Thank you.

Welcome to 2CarPros.

Did the vehicle start since the serpentine belt broke? If not, I suspect the crankshaft position sensor wiring may have been damaged by the belt.

Here is a link that explains the most common causes of a crank no start condition. Take a look through the link and see if anything helps.
