check battery the take the relay box off and put a wire long enough to go from both sides of it to loop it around and see if it starts

First thing would be jump it off,if it cranks then your new battery is bad,if it does not crank,then check your starter,some times low amp battery such as the one you replaced will eat the stater from low voltage.
