John Deere 2720 New battery replaced, turn the key loud

Customer Question
John Deere 2720...

John Deere 2720 New battery replaced, turn the key loud click and everything stops. Tried 10 mins later, slight buzzing sound, followed by the click and everything stops.

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Heavy Equipment Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts.

Who will be answering my questions?

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing this yourself? What have you tried so far?

Replaced the battery with a new one, corroded terminal and no power in battery. Turned the ignition and click...like it shorts out.
