Double check the battery install, make sure it isn't but in backwards, negative to ground, positive to main power supply and starter. Then start checking for blown main fuses or fuselinks.

fuse links.very likely. prolly slow blow wires. also locate every ground on.the.vehicle and clean them. clean all wiring connectii.s. look for shorts or bare wires. check injector harnesses if mpi. thats to keep it running and working right. you blew a fuse link. prolly right by the battery. should be a big white wire and a red wire. theres a box with a black red green and brown wires. make sure they arent burnt melted or corroded. find out whats shorting out or itll happen again. i bet its a w.6 liter g54b engine. very very finicky and the wiring is a nightmare. good luck.lol
