Q: Replaced battery and won't start but radio and lights work. please help on 2005 Chevrolet Equinox

We have tried to reset passlock and the 10 minute and the 30 minute nothing has worked. The car would not start before we change battery but lights and radio and widows went down fine. We think maybe we locked it when the batttery was almost dead. Please help us. Thanks
