I am changing timing belt and lined everything up after

Customer Question

i am changing timing belt and lined everything up after installing new belts. Car will not start.It is a 2003 hyundai sonata
JA: How many miles are on the timing belt? Have you ever had to change it before?
Customer: balance belt snapped and destroyed crankshaft position sensor and blade. I decided to replace timing belt to. I only had the car for a year. The way things are marked it looks like it has been changed before.
JA: Are you fixing your Sonata yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I am fixing it myself. I have replaced everything. Made sure it was tdc lined all marks up by what i have seen was properly and not by what someone has marked. The only thing haven't done was made sure I have gotten compression when I set to TDC.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: nope

Hello I will help

Which engine do you have? 4 or 6 cylinder?

Do you have a compression gauge? A voltmeter?
