Okay. So I replaced the alternator, serpentine belt, and some of the rivets in the flywheel because I broke some with my hammer getting angry learning how to reinstall them...


I'll check with the multimeter and post it for you tomorrow.. if i remember correctly it was still reading 13.99 last I checked.

Flywheel?  What's that all about?

Been following this thread, I may have missed it, but did you ever pull the codes? You will definitely get codes for a no-start, what were they?

I am confused (officially) so you pulled the engine to change the serpentine belt and then beat on the fly wheel with a hammer and broke some rivets?  I might be wrong in my understanding. I am also going to say the fly wheel most likely has no rivets as it is most presumably bolted on to the engine.   This is going down hill fast I suggest contacting a knowledgeable mechanic friend to assist you.

I'm having a hard time believing all this.

I think he's talking about the plastic rivets in the wheel well liner- which he probably removed to do the alternator and belt.
