When ignition is turned nothing happens. Sometimes ignition will turn gages on and dome light but not always. No sound is made like the engine is trying to start. Then if you let the car sit for awhile it may start. If you jiggle the key it won't start.

Try this: Turn on the dome light. When you turn the key to start and hear the click, what does the dome light do? If it stays lit or dims only a little bit, then the battery is OK. If it does completely out, then either the starter is drawing too much current, or the battery charge is too low to turn the starter overt. New batteries are not always fully charged. Now, if there was no problem with the dome light going out, there are a few possible issues:
The new starter is bad.
There is not enough current getting to the starter from the battery. This could be a corroded or loose connection at the starter or battery terminal, or there may be a partially melted fusible link in the cable from the battery to the starter.
The engine may be seized. The starter cannot turn the engine over if the crankshaft is frozen.
The component is a
starter. When you insert your key into theignition and turn it, you switch on the power to the coil and vehicle
computers. By turning the key to the start position it will supply power to the
starter and solenoid which cranks the engine until you release the key allowing
to return to the ignition on position.If the battery is weak the starter solenoid may engage producing a
clicking sound, but it will not crank the engine. Another test is to turn on
the dome light and try to start the vehicle, if you see the dome light dim when
you are trying to start the car the battery is weak or the starter has a short.
Starters are temperamental at times and can be intermittent working sometimesand malfunction other times. Your ignition
switch, fuse, or relay could also produce symptoms of your vehicle not
Replace the alternator,and clean the battery cable ends real shiny,no grey,or black film left on the cable ends that connect to the battery.Alternator does not have enough power to run the ignition and all it`s assesories.
