does anything work?
did she hook up the battery backwards or jump start it wrong or anything prior to battery replacement?
ok just checking before we chase a ghost issue.. cables are secure and tight? does the key turn ? any clicking?
Have your tried a "capacitive discharge"? You disconnect the battery, and touch the cable ends together to discharge any stored electrical "memory" in all the modules.
close and lock all the doors, allow the car to sit for at least two minutes. Then using the key unlock and open the car door and try to start, this should reset the alarm control unit, if this does not work, then do the same, close and lock the doors, wait two minutes, then open the trunk, do not close but leave it open, then open the door and try to start.
