Check other fuses.
Ensure the security system is disarmed.

No you do not. You need to use the fob or key to lock/unlock doors or insert key into ignition and turn it to run position.

Can you provide more information as to your present problem?
Do the dash indicator lights shows when ignition is turned on?
Is the security light blinking?

Pardon me. No the problem started only after battery replacement, have checked fuses, under dash, primary and secondary fuse boxes. New spark plugs

Let us start with the basics for the ingition system as there are no sparks. You would need a test light or DVOM to perform the testings.

At the ignition coils, check for battery voltage at Black/White wire with ignition switch turned on. If battery voltage is not availabl, check #2 fuaes under dash for battery voltage ay both ends. If battery voltage is available, check the ignition coil relay.
