Default Re: Won't crank after disconnecting battery?

1-Why did you disconnect the battery? Was it for electrical work, dead battery?

2-Is the battery fully charged or not? It may be a dead or discharged battery requiring an overnight charge or replacement.

3-Did you try jump starting with another battery?

While not second guessing on anything, simply disconnecting a battery and reconnecting it shouldn't result in your predicament unless something was left out of your post. Sometimes it doesn't help to think or guess ahead with possible answers other than checking the basics, in this case battery, its state of charge, battery cables being free of corrosion, etc.. Since power is needed to get an engine to start up, power and distributing it starts with the battery. A jump start from another battery can help immediately.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
