Have you tried jump starting it ith jumper cables? The replacement battery may be bad.

It takes amps to turn the engine over. If you live near an AutoZone you can have it load tested. I would try jump starting it. If it starts then you know the starter circuit is good.

Then the battery must be OK. Sounds lie a problem with the ignition switch then.
