First start with your starter have it checked to see if the solenoid is still good or not next checkthe battery take it out and have it checked at a parts store for example advance auto to see if the battery is good or not. If this is not the problem have your alternator checked if it is not charging then the vechile wont keep charge or stay running

Does the vehicle have remote door locks, mine had this where the locks would lock right after start up. The unit went bad I had to unhook this to get the truck to start.

If you were the one that changed the starter, you will remember the wires you had to take lose. You can jumper between the small terminal on the solenoid and the bigger battery terminal to see if it will crank. If it doesn't then check your battery cables for good connection. As you mentioned the other electrical items seem to functioning properly. Do the headlights dim at all when you try to crank it over. If so it is a bad conection with your cables, if not check for a bad fuse in the fuse box. I don't have my book here to tell you which one just check them all. If they are ok you most likely have a bad starter switch. It's located under the dash on top of the steering column. Luck to ya... Kirk
