Remove your battery cable to relay, relay cable to starter, and ground cable. Inspect all crimp connection for white or green corrosion. If so replace.
Wire brush or sand all connectors shiny clean, add a "light" coat of dielectric, (Vaseline works.).
Tighten all connections securely.

Check for a blown fuse.

Be sure to trickle/float charge your new battery for a few days. It should be around 13.5 volts.
