Hey Ron==If it doesn't make any noise, check the battery cables making sure there is a good ground between the engine and body. If it has power to the lights, short across the small terminal labeled "S" NOT "R" on the starter solonoid and the battery cable at the starter. This should engage the starter so be careful if it is standard trans. If this does start it, check the neutral safety switch if it is auto or the clutch switch if it is standard. If these switches are good, it can be the ignition switch. GoodluckJoe

Even after I put a new battery the car would not start easily. Please help.

Likely something to do with the Cam angle sensor...other symptoms are engine stalling (even with autotrans) and rough starting.

We have no way of even guestimating. for obvious reasons & to attract replacements. Companies that admit to turnover will diminish the rate if doesn't sound too good.
