Please Help. 1990 Toyota Celica

I know this may sound stupid but I have to ask.
My husband replaced the front passenger side strut and brake line on my 1990 Toyota Celica. My car ran fine and cranked right up every time, as soon as he replaced these parts we tried to start it to move it and now the car will not even turn over. It is dead, we even tried to jump it and still nothing. It is a 1.3 liter. I know one part has nothing to do with the other but this truly happened. Anyone can help me please before I start putting alot of money in this old car playing guessing games. Thank you.

Been there , done that...


On the passenger side strut tower, under the hood, there is a ground strap that goes on one of the strut bolts...Make sure it was reinstalled. If it was indeed reinstalled...take it off, clean it with a piece of emery, or sandpaper, and put it back securely...try again....

that's why they always say in any repair manual:
1. step one - remove negative cable from your battery.
i bet you uncle is right. but before you start attaching any ground connections - do yourself a favor, have that battery disconnected, please. or you can fry half electrical system including ECM.
