sounds like a bad battery cable or at least a bad connection. could be the battery ground to body /engine that is if the new battery is fully charged.

Have to confirm previous reply, trouble is a bad connection either with Battery cables themselves or a bad engine ground. The Northstar engine block is aluminum and engine grounding is notorious difficult. Make sure all connections are clean and tight.

You have most likely figured out your issue by now but I offer this...I replaced battery in my 04 few months ago, there was enuf juice to light up everything but not to start..turns out when I tested the new battery it came up @ 10.4 volts...turns out it had a bad cell
