I recently got a new battery for my explorer because it needed a new one and then once I tried starting it up it didn't even make a click I went over the hood and had someone else try to start it but it made this scanning noise (that's the best way I could explain the sound). All the lights are on, I also spoke with a mechanic and he suggested getting my key reprogrammed yet i want to be sure what exactly is the problem before I spend on anything else. Help would be greatly appreciated thank you.

It is possible that maybe the connections on the battery terminal ends are not tight enough or secured properly. I would recommend getting a wrench or socket to try and tighten up the battery terminal ends to ensure a good connection. If this does not resolve the issue, it is also possible that you may have got a bad battery from the parts store.
