Does the starter crank the engine over?

If when you wiggled the battery cables, it starts up fine, then most likely you have a loose battery cable end. That should have been taken care of though when you replaced the battery is you got them back on tight.

So, let me ask you this. Does the fuel pump run for a few seconds after turning the key to run and also does the check engine light and any security lights come on when the key is turned to run, then go out after bulb check, 10 seconds or so, or does either the check engine light or security light stay on or flash?
