Check the stater relay, and the stater you put in could be bad out of the box, also check to make sure your stater is installed correctly that it is lined up with the teeth on the flywheel if not it will not start the car....

Sounds like a fuse problem cranks,turn over but no start.....or security is on.... Some cars u have to close all doors then manmanualinsert key into driver door lock and unlock to reset..... Good luck N keep us posted.
