Default How to resurrect a stored A8?

2000 A8 stored 3 years. Battery replaced 1 month ago. No dash lights, nothing happens with key twist. Battery connection is good. What do I do now?

Like "no interior light", "no door lights", headlamps don't come on and no dash cluster lightup Nothing? Are you CERTAIN the battery is good?
If so, I'd move to the front of the car and see if you have +12V on the fuseblock.... is power getting past the junction point and the big fusible link?
