Remove the spark plugs and run a compression test. I'd guess you will have low-to-no compression. Two likely causes:
1: you did not get the crankshaft and camshaft correctly aligned when you put the new belt on. If this is the case, all cylinders will have about the same compression, but will be very low. Are you absolutely sure that you got the timings marks correct when you put the belt on?
2: the valves were damaged when the belt broke, open valves and pistons coming up. Talk to the parts department of you local Chrysler dealer, and ask if this engine has "negative valve clearance". If that's the case, you will need to pull the head and have the valves repaired. In this case, a few cylinders may have good compression and a few others may have low-to-no compression.

Of course it it also possible that you failed to connect something when you put it back together, and you are not getting spark or gas. Test for that first.

EGR valve may be stuck closed allowing pinging . The Knock sensor can also go bad and not retard timing allowing pinging also . Heavy carbon buildup in the combustion chamber can increase compression causing pinging .

When should i change the water pump in a 1996 eagle vision tsi

Change the water pump when it starts leaking or, if you have over 100,000 miles on the car, and you are doing additional work like changing the timing belt. If it will give you peace of mind, go a head and change it. Otherwise, leave it in the car and let it work.

1996 Vision Eagle runs rough and stalls when started

BCM I believe on that should be behind glove box area. You'll have to remove knee guard from door to radio, to see it up under near glove box area, screws & brackets holding up there. As far as disabling it, a little google work or go on a forum, you may get info, but sounds like circuit board has to be modified with jumper wire or something. Have you tried unlocking passenger door with key(s) to see if that will disable security system?

96 Vision transmission problems 2 days after waterpump changed

i dont' think a mechanic had anythig to do with this. when a timing belt and a water pump is changed in this type of vehicle there is no interferrence with the transmission, it's only the front of the engine that is disassembled. I've heard that in some cases when a transmission flush is done as well as a fiter change, it can loosen up the dirt particles lodged within it as well as other contaminents and can cause failure. Please note that in some cases the transmission may only require a new relay ! Have it looked at for a second opinion before assuming the worst!
