Hello and welcome! Are there any anti theft or security lights on or flashing on the dash when trying to start the engine? Have you checked for codes in the computer?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
no
Expert:  Amedee replied 1 year ago.

As long as the PCM is awake and working like it should with the key on and all of the fuses are good, chances are you just have a bad starter motor. Of course, you are going to want to verify this before replacing the starter. You can use a test light or a voltmeter to check for power at the starter with the key in the crank position.
