Hi and thanks for contacting Your Mechanic. Since the problem started when you had replaced the battery, check the wires to the battery and make sure that they are not corroded. Also, check the battery cables for they are on the correct posts, meaning negative (-) cable on the negative (-) post and the positive (+) cable on the positive (+) post. Also, check to see that when the wires were removed that if there was anything disturbed. Sometimes other wires to the fuse box can be moved causing them to come loose and creating a no start situation. If you need further assistance troubleshooting your vehicle, then seek out a technician, such as one from Your Mechanic, that can assist you with your no start situation.
