I replaced a dead battery and the engine will not even turn over. The new battery has been tested as being good. All ignition and warning lights come on as normal but yet the engine will not even turn.

Is it an automatic? Check for juice at starter from ignition key. Either clutch switch or neutral switch could be preventing start circuit from energizing.

Could be a lot of things, guessing aint going to fix it. Have the car scanned with Autologic or a GT-1 clone and see if the EWS fell out of alignment or maybe it just isn't recognizing the key. No crank can mean key failure too.
