    You didn't charge the battery or it has gone bad for whatever reason.
    Try charging it first and check its voltage if it takes a charge and has 14V then it should be ok if it has 11V or 12V

    OK do this then put the volt meter on it when you try and start it and see how many volts you have.
    If it drops a bunch you need a new one if it drops a little its still good.
    You would want more than 12 volts if the battery was frashly chargd you would see 14 volts.
