You need to check the engine sensors on the front of the engine. They may have gotten damaged by the belt when it broke. The crankshaft/camshaft sensors or wiring is damaged. I suggest having a certified technician, like one from YourMechanic, diagnose your starting issue firsthand to pinpoint what exactly is going on.
