Did you have power before the new battery? Check your connections.


Is batt in rear or front? Agree with above reply; why did U replace battery? If batt in rear may be an jump start terminal in eng compartment. Try a batt box jump from there. If nothing, conns/main fuse check should be next.


Sorry thought this was a Mini question, rather a ? About Minis. Only CTS's I know of w/rear battery locations have been seriously rear ended Haha
