Default New battery installed-car won't start

Just installed a new battery in my 04' S80 T6-now the engine turns over great, however the car will not start. Any ideas? Thanks.

I just had the fuel pump replaced by a dealer under a recall, and I installed new plugs a few weeks ago. Any chance the security system has shut the ignition down when the battery was removed? The car was running good before replacing the battery-since it was the original battery, I thought it might be a good idea to replace it before winter. Thanks.
