Car won't start after cleaning throttle body

Hi guys. I'm new here. So I picked up a '96 E36 1.8 last week. It was running fine. Today I decided to give it a little clean up l. When I was cleaning the engine bay, I removed the throttle body and the two sensors that connects to it and just cleaned and refitted them. The battery was connected the whole time. Now the car won't start.

Before that I took off the front passenger side tyre and tie rod end to inspect. I have no idea where to start checking. Also I don't get any check lights on my dashboard except for few like parking brake, oil pressure etc when the key is on position 2. That has been always like that. Any help would be much appreciated
