Dash lights flicker, truck won't start.

Hey all, I just recently started having a problem with my truck about a day ago. It's a 2005 6.0 Auto w/ about 200k miles for some background info.

When I put the key in the ignition, then turn it to the 'On' position, my dash lights will flicker, and I'll hear a buzz under the hood that I normally do whenever I'm about to start my truck, but the buzz just keeps on repeating and I cannot crank my vehicle. I thought it was problem with the batteries, so I bought a brand new one, and that seemed to fix nothing. Any help? Thanks in advance.

Here's a short video of some of the problems I'm having. Sorry for the angle of the video, I was hoping it uploaded in a landscape view.

Have you checked the voltage of each battery? Normally flickering means a very low charge. Relays only have a enough energy to open and close the control sides but not hold them to power on.
