Is the battery installed with correct polarity? Have you a volt meter? Check voltage across the battery it should be 12.6 volts. Leave the black lead of the voltmeter on the battery negative terminal and see if you have power at the alternator and fuse links/fuses starter motor when you move the red lead of the voltmeter around. Try jump starting the car from another car and see if it will start. If the battery has sat for several months perhaps the battery has sulphated and died.
