Be sure that the "new" battery is actually fully charged. Also, be sure that the immobilizer (security) system off. If you suspect that the immobilizer may be "on", see these instructions. If the battery is fully charged and the immobilizer is deactivated, and the starter motor still does not operate, there are only two possible explanations: 1) either there is no power to the starter motor/solenoid, or an excessive voltage drop, hence the entire starter circuit would have to be diagnosed; or 2) there is power but the starter/solenoid itself is bad and that includes intermittent operation which does happen. If you desire that a specialist from YourMechanic determine which of these is the issue, and get it resolved, please request a no start diagnostic. If you have further questions or concerns, do not hesitate to re-contact YourMechanic as we are always here to help you.
