This may be difficult to diagnose without knowing which fuses were moved around. There are a number of fuses that could cause the car to not start if removed or switched. There is a battery power fuse (30 Amp), an ignition fuse (30Amp), a fuel pump fuse and a few others that if rearranged could cause the car not to start. I would recommend having an expert from YourMechanic come to your home to diagnose your vehicles inability to start issue and make necessary repairs.
