I changed the battery on my QX56. The car is turning over but won't start. What should I do?

Was the car starting before you changed the battery..?
Check your battery leads particularly the black earth where it attaches to the engine block/bodywork.

There's many causes of non-starting, and no one on Fixya would be able to give you a definite answer.

Non starting can be caused by electrical sensor failures. The best - and cheapest - option is to ask a mobile mechanic to do a diagnostic check for you and identify the problem.

Non starting can also be caused by a faulty fuel pump.

1998 Mazda B4000 truck wont start sometimes

When you say it won't start, do you have any power at all, does the radio play? Does it click or make a noise of any kind? Is it a cold non start or a warmed up non start? There are a lot of factors to consider in a non start. I still have an occasional cold non start, with full power to my lights, radio, etc. Don't want to make myself sound dumb, but for me it was gear shift (controller). Not really the safety neutral switch, but put it in neutral or move the gear lever and my car would start right away. Chances are while waiting to let it start up you have hit the handle a few times and maybe knocked into position to let it start. If this isn't your problem more info is needed.

Intermittent non-start. No power to starter motor

sounds like the park pawl switck assembly located in the selector assembly in the car or on the side of the transmission could just be out of adjustment

Bmw 525i 2002 non start,no spark,no pulse at coil,code

If your getting no fire at the coil. that's why you're not getting fire to your plugs and therefore it won't start. Change out your coil. This should fix the problem.
