Have you got a good ground? Is the battery fully charged? Give us some more info.

Could be a number of things. Make sure your ground wire is tight to start. If your wiring's all sound inspect the solenoid.

just so you know, just because a battery is "brand new" does not necessarily mean that it is a good battery...not saying that's problem, just letting you in on that little piece of info...if you have a volt meter then that can help you track down your problem as long as it's in the electrical system...if it's not, then I suggest you take your starter to an auto-electric shop if you have one nearby or some shop where they can test and rebuild your starter if necessary...could need a new solenoid or a new drive...thats my recommendation...good luck
