Check battery voltage, should be 12.4vdc, minimum. If battery is good and still won't turn over, check all battery cables for corrosion and make sure they're tight. If all cables are ok, check for voltage at the starter solenoid small terminal. If voltage is present and still no crank, replace starter

Sounds like a weak battery. You probably need a new one. Have it tested.

We replaced the battery cables & the battery is charged.

Then proceed to next step, check voltage signal at the starter solenoid. Be careful do not assume battery is good just because you changed it, check for proper voltage. 90% of the time the problem is the battery, dirty, corroded or loose battery cables
