Touch ID not working after battery replacement

I replaced my battery and after putting everything back together the touch screen doesn't work. Says it can't be activated. I did have some problems removing the battery so I may have done something trying to get it out. Any ideas?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Make all the connections to test the touch screen to make sure the screen is working. Disconnect the battery and then reconnect it. That is what worked for me

@ Ben.

You can't put home button cable in and then connect battery cable on a 5S, it's almost impossible.

After the display is plugged in, and tested, disconnect the battery, then reconnect the battery. Then you plug in the home button cable, then the clasp for it, then close the display, then turn it on. The Touch ID should work then
