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 can cause a no start condition, especially depending on exactly what is happening. If you do hear the alarm going off and the problem was caused by replacing the battery then it's just going to be a matter of pressing the unlock button on the key fob to disarm it, assuming everything is in working order.

What specifically happens when trying to start the engine?
