Seems weird that once you put in a new battery it started fine but now there's nothing. Almost seems like a bad connection. Check your starter relay, fuses, grounds, and battery connections. If all seem good, I would start looking at the ignition module.

WHO replaced the battery? Using the incorrect procedure for something as simple as a battery disconnect can cause some interesting problems. Do you have a Factory or Aftermarket Theft Deterrent system installed. You might have to have your Computers RESET.
