hi, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will help you .
ok, if it was starting good with the new battery and this is a new issue ,I would highly suspect the starter is bad .
from all the cranking and trying to start the car with the old battery caused the starter to have to work harder and drawing too much amperage which in turn hurt the starter
I would take the starter out and have it tested but I feel highly that the starter is bad from the cranking you were doing before you changed the battery .jazzmaster ..
How do I locate and remove the starter to get it tested? I have to go to work, so will check back during lunch
the starter is located at the rear of the motor-passenger side-at the botton of the motor where the motor and transmission meet .
disconnect the neg battery terminal off the battery amd the there are 2 bolts holding the starter in .
if possible remove the wiring to the starter before taking out the bolts ....jazzmaster ..
