    Sorry but this is not enough information to help your diagnose your problem. It is not possible to damage the vehicle by replacing the battery unless you short the the terminals on the battery together while they are connected to the vehicle. – David Winslow Aug 29 '15 at 18:32
  • Can you provide more details? How old is the car? What mileage? How long has it been since it was previously started? Is it summer or winter where you are? Have you checked or flushed the radiator? Any accident damage? Has any major work been done on the car recently? Did the car have any other problems? – Sir Swears-a-lot Sep 2 '15 at 7:38
