Default Disconnected Heater Hoses-now won't start

Hello Everyone....I'm stumped at the moment. I temp. disconnected my heater hoses due to a blown heater core (to be fixed soon). Now I get nothing from the starter - Instrument panel lights up as normal...MIL image is now shown.
Started fine several times this morn...but nothing now. I checked around the area where I've been working to see if I disconnected anything,...checked my battery - OK,...can't figure it out so far! Any suggestions?

Thanks! 2008 - 2.4 no turbo

where did you disconnect the hoses? in front of the motor, along the side near the TIPM ( fuse box)

Thanks for your reply.....disconnected at the firewall by the fuse box. I checked the 4 multi-pin plugs that are right there - the one closest to the hoses was a little cocked because of my leaning on it a little....but I disconnected it and re-connected it so that it flushed up with the other three.

Pull this plug back out & look for bent or broken pins.

OK....I figured it must be something like this since I removed battery and cleaned posts/clamps to try & eliminate that possiblity...put the battery on a 40amp quick charge but its amps were already ample...I'm fairly sure it's not the battery....will go out and check that plug now. Thanks!

Edit: Checked the plug - there was a receptor/pin that was pushed down below the others - all the rec/pins were a bit loose - I'm trying to slip the "guide sleeve" (for lack of actual term) over the rec/pins in order to re-insert assembled plug into socket (checked the pins inside the "socket" receptacle and all appeared OK) - now done with no success of starting the engine

If you have a voltmeter I would check to see if you have 12 volts going to the solenoid from the ignition switch when you are trying to start the engine.

Does the security red light stay on on the dash when the ignition is on?

No volt meter to check that. The only symbols that remain on are the two seat belt figures and the battery symbol. Thanks to everyone so far!

Turns out to be in the fuse box - I had found a blown fuse earlier but when replaced, it still didn't work....apparently there was a break in the circuit beneath that fuse. All's working now - thanks for each of your input!
