FYI- Turning over is when you turn the key to the start positioin and the engine cranks, or turns over. I think you are confusing that with the engine firing, which would happen after you crank the engine if you had gas, air, compression and spark.

That being said, I would check all the fuses, look for other damage from the rodents, make sure you have all four of the above mentioned items and give it another try.
