Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! I apologize for the extended wait time you experienced, I've only just come online now and would like to assist you with your question.

There are quite a few things that will cause a no start condition and it's going to require some electrical testing to determine exactly what is going on. Since you replaced the battery I'm assuming that it doesn't crank. The problem may be the key, wireless ignition node, it could be transmission range sensor related, wiring, the problem may be with the powertrain control module, the starter, cables and connections.

Is there any noise from the engine compartment when turning the key to the crank position?
