Did it not start before you replace the battery? Check the battery cables, and grounds. You might have a short.

The main fuse could be burnt out, I believe its an 80amp which is located under the hood in the passenger side fuse box.

CHECK YOUR BATTERY INSTALLATION AND CABLES! IF YOU HOOKED UP THE POSITIVE SIDE BEFORE GROUNDING THE BATTERY, YOU MAY HAVE BLOWN THE MASTER FUSE ,AS WELL AS OTHERS!
