Hello. My name is Tan.

Are you sure you reconnected all the wires on thw battery correctly. You should have the fat cables that go to the engine then another set of wires #10 gauge red and black that supply power to all the accessories. Check that they are connected. If connected check the red wire for an inline fuse check the fuse.

If all is good post back and we will have to do some voltage tests with a volt meter.

Post back with findings and questions.

Thank you.Tan
