Hello and welcome to Justanswer!

There are many things that can cause a no start condition and it will most likely require some testing to determine what is going on. There may be damage due to incorrect battery connect technique or reversed polarity, the problem may be unrelated to the battery, or it may be as simple as disarming an alarm.

Have you pressed the unlock button on the key fob since reconnecting the battery?
