you need to check and if you have current to the start first check the wire at the starter if you do not have current then you need to find the wires first also check all fuse in both fuse boxes pay attention to the ones that say starter and battery. let me know if this helps you
DID YOU GAP PLUGS CORRECTLY? CHECK TO MAKE SURE SPARK PLUG WIRES ARE IN RIGHT FIRING ORDER QUESTION DOES ENGINE TURN OVER LIKE IT WANTS TO START???? CHECK ALL FUSES SOME HAVE STARTER RELAY FUSES ALSO MAKE SURE TRANSMISSION IS FIRMLY IS PARK MAY HAVE A STARTER SAFETY RELAY CAR WONT START UNLESS PARK IS ACHIEVED.....GOOD LUCK
So everything was fine before you changed the battery and then after you installed the new battery the car wont start? Did you double check that the battery was the correct model for your car? Did you check that the battery cables and connectors are still in good shape (clean, tight, no signs of damage, fraying, or over-heating). Did you check that the battery came fully charged? Check the connections at the battery, starter, and engine block (ground).
Worst case or one suggestion might be the timing chain. I bet I get some flack here from pros and dealer techs, but the slow cranking is what I keyed off of. Iam sure the knowledgable olds folks will help you. Also bad battery cables,bad starter or just it's solenoid. Do you feel it is a starter issue as in cranking or no start as won't stay running?
mine is doing the same... all i did was reconnect the battery...and it worked fine...but know my hood wont open!!! so i cant fix the cable on the battery!!! i pull on the darn cable so hard and the hood still wont budge!!!
It could possibly be the starter, but before you get that far make sure the Battery cables are connected very tight. If loose the car won't start or do anything. Also make sure the battery cable is grounded.
