Hopefully it's not locked up. Start with fuses and relays, then check ALL wires and connections (make sure they are clean and tight) at the battery, starter and fuse box. When you replaced the starter did it have or come with shims? If you didn't use any the starter might be to close to the flex plate not allowing it to turn the engine over.

Or has it overheated badly any time?
