Heather, new battery new starter. it sounds like the starter ring on the flywheel is worn. did anyone check the voltage output on the old battery. did anyone check the old starter? when you turn the ignition key is there any clicking sound from the starter?
ur car starter is attached to ur engine bell housing/ check the size of the starter bolt/ remove battery terminal/ remove electrical wiring connection both positive and negative and body ground from ur starter/ loosen bolt with a wrench/ pull out old starter/ install new starter and wiring connections but make sure to install the wiring correctly to the right terminals otherwise u will fry the starter when u start the car and lastly install battery terminal....
if the starter does not try to crank the engine when you turn the key, a pretty reliable trick is to lightly tap on the body of the starter a few times and then attempt to start the car. If it then starts, your starter is bad. hopefully you've got a warranty on the starter.
I had a similar issue and found that the connections at the starter shifted and created a short. An old friend of mine kept frying the starter solenoid wires and kept a spare set along. He beat the problem by replacing the main ground strap/cable from the battery to the chasis. Age caused too much ground resistance and caused the ignition wires to overheat and melt. Another friend was on his fourth alternater on a Landrover when I suggested he look at the battery ground.
