1) Write the factory complaining about the ineffective inadequate dealership, with a copy of the receipts, and request a refund 'cause the guy is not a mechanic, just a parts changer. BTW, the f'n battery doesn't need to "initialize" to the car: that's called second hand hay.
2) The odds are it's the (ECU) computer. Get thee to a junkyard.
C) Try turning the key on, and then wait a few seconds before starting the car. I had a Ford Taurus POS that if you started "too fast" it wouldn't always recognize the radio- I'd have to "reboot" (pull over, turn off, restart) the car to get the radio to work. It also took a few seconds for the fuel pump to repressure the lines, so that also helped it start easier.
4) AND ... sometimes it's more than one thing. Trust no one. Check everything.
