Check your battery connections, and make sure the battery is well charged. The thermostat will not keep a car from starting, weather it was installed correctly or not. Did you remore the distributor cap, plug wires , or some other electrical connections during your work? I'm thinking this is an electrical problem. Lastly, the battery cables could be old and corroded. working in the engine compartment may have moved them around enough for them to fail.

Try disconect the battery from the car. Wait a minute and reconnect. This should reset the computer. This happened
to my moms Honda FR-V. The mechanic had seen it before.
Its worth a try.

My honda crx

You need a new thermostat if you haven't replaced it lately.
They go bad after a while and its very possible that its broken because its tendency when broken is to not be able to control how much to cool the engine and how hot to keep it.
