Default Need Help-1997 LS400 doesn't start

I helped a friend replace his starter. We followed the DIY on her to a T. Made super sure we reconnected everything right. After we had it together we tested 8-10 times and it started right up. He drove it home and now it won't start. It has plenty of juice. We checked the starter fuse. It's good. Any other ideas of what to look for. It does NOT turn over.
