You may have fried the fuseable link that comes off of the positive battery terminal. Disconnect it from the post as well as the negative cable from the battery. Check the continuity along the length of the cable anywhere thrre is no continuity the link has blow, replace it or the entire cable.
You probably blew the main fuse. Its like a 100 amp fuse. huge thing. It should be in the under hood fuse block or close to a battery cable. Your owners manual will tell the location. If thats it you can rig it up with aluminum foil for now to get it back on the road.
First check and make sure the cables are attached to the correct posts. positive to positive and neg to neg. If so, make sure the battery is charged. Even new batteries can be defective. Try jumping it with a booster box or jumper cables. Check your main fuse. During installation, if the cables crossed it could have popped your fuse. Good luck
Start by checking the fuses and then the battery connections, this sounds like a fuse poped maybe a main fuse, if its a fuse then replace the fuse if it pops again then theres a dead short somewhere, these are famous for bad starters and starter relays going bad, so see when fuse pops again if its when key is turned on or when you try to crank the motor, if its when cranking then its mostlikely the relay or starter, this main fuses would be in the engine compartment fuses box.
1. New battery defective. ( Open circuit between battery cells ) Seen it before, therefore, possible.
2. Battery terminals not making connection ( check terminals )
3. Battery has different polarity than the original battery. ( Positive post and the negative post are reversed ) They do sell the reverse battery, therefore, possible. Basically, a battery hooked up backwards. That would cause the Main fuse to blow resulting the no power in the vehicle.
