05 sts V8 wont start after changing starter
Alright so my car wouldn't start, got a new battery nothing. Got the starter new and worked. So drove it to store and all this and next day morning turned on fine. Went into Walmart and came out and BAM. nothing!!!! Everything turns on (radio, gauges..etc) but car don't. Not even a click like before.

Sounds like a relay or possibly a neutral safety switch. Or a connection didn't get properly tightened on the starter.
I haven't worked on the STS system myself, but these are general things to check on most starting systems.
