Are you certain all cables are connected appropriately? Also, can you verify the replacement battery is fully charged?

You are saying the outside headlights and such work, but not the dash lights?

ya its fully charged i just bought a new one yesterday. but i think it might be the cable terminals are just old and probably need to be replaced . the car has been sitting there for a while. and just the headlights work nothing else.
