My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

The first thing to do here is check and make sure no fuses had shorted out when the battery was replaced.In some cases a voltage surge/spike can occur and short out one or more fuses during a battery install and can cause this type of fault here.If this is checked and found to be o.k. a relearn may need done to allow the engine to start and this usually requires a dealers computer to do this relearn.You can try locking and unlocking the vehicle with the key or remote then try and start the engine and see if it starts then.If this does not work let me know so we can continue.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.Thanks Pete.
