Default Help?? Did something get wet?

Well, I followed the procedure and cleaned my evap core and guess what? Now my freakin' car won't start. It cranks but won't start. I was pretty careful when I hosed off the brake cleaner and checked every so often to make sure that the interior carpets were not getting wet. Everything inside was bone dry. I will wait a while to see if the car starts. I am very discouraged now. The wires are not wet and everything went back together in 5 minutes. I hope I don't have to have the car towed to my friends shop....AGAIN!!! Update..car has been towed to my friends shop and he is checking it out...with no luck so far....any ideas fellas?

Mine'* in pieces for much the same reason now; I'm replacing the A/C evaporator on my '93 SSEi (see the related Subject on this in this same forum). Did you disturb or remove the fuse/relay center that'* just above the blower resistor/controller that you removed for access? Have you got it back together properly? Have you reattached the large booster cable that bolts to the top center of the fuse/relay housing?

Sorry to hear that. Can you determine whether you're getting fuel or spark?
