If you have a new battery as you stated, and there is no 'ticking' noise when you turn the key, there is probably a problem with the starting motor. Need to test to see if power going to it. If so, and its not turning over you probably need to replace it.

Check the connections to the battery and the starter. Also you can turn the igniton on , turn the head lights on and try to blow the horn. If all work well and the lights do not dim and the horn sounds normal, your battery and alternator may be fine and the stater will have to be checked. Hope this helps.
