Default car wont start

hey guys so i recently pulled my dash to do a project then i reinstalled it but once i put everything back in the car wouldnt start i plugged everything back in the way i found it but no luck the car wont even click when i turn the key. i checked fuses just to see if anything blew but no luck. and just a few minute ago when i walked passed it i heard a clicking sound that was coming from the engine bay on the diver side wall couldnt figure out what it was. also the lights dont seem to turn on or pop up but the battery is fine so i'm really confused maybe one of you wirring guru's could help me out with your insight. I am hoping to get this thing running again soon since its my DD and i have to go back to work tomorrow afternoon

I know you said the battery is fine, but did you undo the battery and forget to hook it back up?

There really isnt much a wiring guru can do to help in this situation.

If the car was running previously, then either something wasnt plugged in or got disconnected. Pull it back off if you have to, make sure both grounds on the sides of the dash are making good contact. Not sure if they could be the culprit in this scenario but grounds are key.

I was going to say you either incorrectly hooked up sensors, left one or you have an unconnected ground.

nothing has work for me so far i found what i think the two grounds are but i believe i have three i suspect the 3rd is my alarm and could be the source of my problem but as far as i can tell everything is plug in the way its suppose to be although i noticed i have 3 harnesses that do not lead to anywhere. but nothing electronic seems to work on the car at the moment so i have a feeling i may also have a dead battery as well
