Hello and Welcome! I'm Billy and i will assist you with your inquiry. Feel free to ask if any further info is needed.
My apologies for the delay, thank you for your patience.
Did you have a problem prior to removing the battery?
did you have ignition on while replacing the battery?
the horn and wipers operate by themselves when the battery is connected?
did you try installing the battery, and then locking and unlocking with the remote fob?
when you say car won't start: is the starter operating, or you get nothing while trying?
