Did you clean the terminals off when you changed the battery? How about the wires into the terminals? Is the new battery any good? I have seen brand new batteries, dead, check all this stuff out. The voltage should be over 12, and the electrolytes should all be good, get one of those little things with the floaty balls in them, they will tell you real quick if a cell is dead or not. Stab the volt tester into the battery posts and then into the terminal ends of the wires, and see if they are the same. If that doesn't do it, does it have a coil? or a spark ignitor thing? I forgot what it is called.

SOURCE: The green wire of the
This means theres a dead short somewhere, so the systems it runs have a short you will need to remove power from each one until the short stops. take a look around for wires touching ground, the raido woundnt be the problem it has its on fuse and so does the horn, remove the starter wire, the small wire to starter and leave the big battery cable going to starter and then try to start it, i know it wont start but this will tell you if its the starter thats shorting out, if that doiesnt do it then continue remove connections until you locate it, also repair the wire and then turn the key on and see if it blows the fuselink if it doesnt then you know its the starter, but then crank and see if it blows to make sure, if it only blows when you crank it then its the starter, if it blows as soon as the key is turn on then its something else. hope this is helpful, good luck.
