Make sure you didn't put the non conductive washer in the wrong position when reconnecting the battery... I did that, and it was a very embarrassing trip to the dealer. I was getting a little power (lights may or may not come on, etc.) but not enough to try to start or turn the radio on.

Clean the terminal with sandpaper...Garuntee it will work and it's probably calcium built up. My car all of a sudden wouldn't start a couple weeks ago...went out and bought a new battery and still wouldn't start....cleaner the terminals and it started up right away.

sometimes when you disconnect the battery the alarm gets activated, plug the battery in close all the doors and (insert) the key in the door and lock and unlock the car , sometimes that will reset the alarm.. hey worth a try.. i have seen this work on several cars
