2005 mustange gt won't turn over

I let my car out for the winter, I tried to start it would not turn over put a new battery in and it still does not turn over no sound at all.
When I tried jump starting it the alarm went off. Tried to start again still nothing. I have the fuses number 4 and 22 I think
4 is 30 amp square and #22 sits just in front of 4 and is a large silver fuse. They both tested fine. Does anyone have any ideas?

Sounds like a bad connection on the battery cables either on the battery itself or maybe where the ground is connected to the frame.
The fact that the alarm went off when you tried to jump start it makes me think this.
Good Luck.

If your car has a manual transmission, check the clutch pedal "safety switch"

im just trying to get a better picture... so all the accessories work when you turn the key on? the radio, lights, gauges move? or does nothing happen at all when the key is on?

It is to substain power but if it wasn't able to charge your battery right because it needs a replacement then your car defiantely would't start cause of it... like they said up above though if everything is working in the car such as lights,,,,etc.... then its not your alternator..

If you have an auto trans make sure its in park. you can also turn the key and move the shifter in park. if it starts then the safety switch needs adjusting.
If Stick then as said before make sure the the clutch is pushed all the way in.

You can also take a volt meter and put one lead on the engine that isn't painted and the other on the + lead. You should get a reading. if you don't then you have a ground cable either corroded or lose.

Does your car have a remote strater?
If so give the remote starter disable switch a flick. Most times this will be installed hidden under the dash. There is some sort of fail safe system in the remote starter that will dissable the ignition if the battery is disconnected or the ignition switch is cycled numerous times without a start.
This can also happen when installing a tune (again multiple key cycles), thats how i figured it out.
