    Did the sensor get fitted? When my sensor went down my car would not start... Perhaps it was a faulty/incorrect sensor fitted.

    A diagnostic scan would point you in the right direction(they do mobile call out's too)

    PLease take CAPS LOCK OFF!

    Leaving bonnet up may have flattened the battery.,..haev you checked for this?

    You need a diagnostic scan if its not starting IMO

    I would check for power(voltage) at the starter motor solenoid wire first off if you know the battery is good
