I had this exact problem, I put my car into neutral(absolutely important that it's in neutral if not the car could jump forward and run you over) and put the Parking Brake on, I took a screw driver, crawled under the front of the car, located the starter and used the screwdriver to short out the starter by pressing it against the 2 bolts, the starter spun then i got back in the car and started it like normal and i have not had that problem since(it's been about 5 months) Check to see if the engine is locked up. 2 reasons i can think of..one, have you installed a new ignition? and the other is the engine seized up. When mine did this it was because the starter was stuck. I got under the front end and found the starter and gave it a good whack. Car started fine after that.

What should you check next if you already replaced the battery and the starter and your vehicle still will not start?

Since you changed your battery and starter I'm assuming you are getting fuel and spark is your problem. You should check your starter relay, the wires from the relay to your starter, the wires from your battery to the relay, the wires from your locking cylinder to the relay, and your locking cylinder. You might also check your alternator. You can take it to a parts store to have it bench tested for free.

Well not the starter. The starter is used to start spinning the engine and draws its power from the battery. The alternator uses the engines belt to recharge the battery and to power the cars electronics as well as lights. When you shut the engine off, the power then draws from the battery.
