I put a new battery in mine and was told to put in the new battery and then get in the car with door shut and turn key to on position for about 90 seconds, this worked for me, mabey it will work for you, if your battery is still hooked up you should first unhook it for a couple minutes then reconnect the battery and follow procedure. hope this helps

Think the battery is dead. It is possible that the accident caused some damage to the wiring so that when you shut it down, the battery is being discharged.
Get battery charged and car running. then with car totally off hook up ammeter to battery and look for current draw. Then start removing fuses till you come across the circuit responsible for the draw and further troubleshoot that circuit for the offender. Till you find it leave fuse out so you can start car a few days later.
Humm ? Sat for six months? Check to see If your new battery Is charged . If It's charged check your main fuse change that
If still no power?
Check your battery cable contacts at the battery and clean them and where they are connected to the starter and the ground to the engine and body.... Still No power? Check for chip monk wire damage they love to nest in the wires
do not suspect computer. 1 the new battery may not have been charged from the store so would need to be charged before use, charge new battery on a charging set and see if this resoves the problem. *or use slave leads and start from a second vehicle) 2 your alternator may not be charging the battery so after a while it will just die. use a volt meter and check that volage is increaseing to your battery when the engine is running. if not suspect alterantor defective and may need replacement.
you are having a problem with your alternator. the battery has a main purpose to start the vehicle, keep computer memory, and give power to electrical components when the key is in the on position. the alternator charges the battery and gives power to electrical components when the vehicle is running. now when you hit the brakes there was an extra load added to the alternator and if the car died then the alternator is running very weak and needs to be relace.
Was this starter from a discound retail parts store? well most times those cheap starters are no rebuilt very well you get what you pay for, Try this when it won't start reach and hit the starter with whatever you can a good sharp hit not too hard if it starts after you tap on it I have always had it be the starter the small wire goes on the "S" terminal and the big battery wire goes on the stud on the solonoid any other fuse link wires with the same size eyelet should also go on the same stud.
