My name is ***** ***** I will assist you with your question today. I'm an independent contractor and I don't get paid until a rating has been made. We can go back and forth as needed to help resolve the issue you are having. Follow ups are free after ratings, so rate in confidence! Have you checked to see if the starter is getting power to the ignition wire? How are the battery cables and alternator? Since you changed the battery, verify the cables are good and tight. The issue you have after a battery replacement is common related to loose battery cables. Was the alternator tested to make sure it isn't pulling any power with the key off? When the diodes go bad, they will drain a battery and do so very fast causing this issue as well. Check the starter to make sure it isn't faulty. Rule out these obvious causes and then we can continue if needed.__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________You want a 5 star service and I want to provide a 5 star service.
