It may still be the battery. Have you tried connecting jumper cables from another vehicle and see if it will start?
If a battery is internally shorted, it will not start the vehicle. The meter will show 12 volts but it is CCA (Cold Cranking Amps) that start the vehicle, whether it is push button start or key start.
