I know this sounds weird,but when you installed the new battery did you remove the ground and positive protective post covers? I had a customer tow their vehicle in to the shop for a no-start after battery replacement and they put the negative post on with the cover still attached to the battery and of course it would not start...lol....If this is not an issue,check the ground wires on the engine and the body ground near the battery for looseness or corrosion.Same with the terminal ends.Hope this information helps,
KEN

    If nothing is getting power like you previously stated,then the starter is most likely not the issue at all..Check all the main ignition fuses next and let me know what you find.We will get it narrowed down asap.
    thanks,

1983 monte carlo 305cid when you turn the key to start absolutely nothing happens battery is new and good double checked that does not attempt to turn over nothing happens


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. You need to check your ignition fuse in your fuse box. If the fuse is good, make sure the terminals ends on your battery wires are not loose. Make sure they are clean. If your battery connection is good and the battery as well, try changing the starter or starter solenoid. Once you find it, try hitting it a few times to see if it will start. Since the battery connection and battery is good at this point, change the starter. Make sure all the wires to the starter are connected. When working on the starter, make sure you take the battery terminals off.

Just a long shot, but, (correct me if I am wrong about this), has the timing chain ever been changed? It is possible that it might have slipped a gear ot two. There could be other problems that has nothing to do with the changing of the Alt. Possible cam problems ? You will have to first check the timing.

it sounds like your ignition switch could be bad, it is mounted on the steering column under the dash, it is the actual switch that activates the ignition and starter when you turn your key. if it is going bad it will give the same symptoms that you have described.

Won't start getting nothing when i turn key


Recheck all your connections, battery. starter, look for fuseable link on small wire going to starter. Might want to chk.that wire with test light when key switch is in start position and see if it lights. If it does not light might be starter switch under dash on steering colume.
