Thanks for using Just Answer. I would be glad to assist you.
Are you getting signal to the starter?
You need to begin by seeing if you are getting signal to the starter solenoid.
You can check it with a test light. Ground the test light somewhere on the engine. Probe the small terminal on the starter solenoid and then have someone turn the key. If the test light illuminates then you are getting power to the starter. If not then you are not getting power to the starter.
Please begin by testing for this and let me know the outcome.
Continue to use this post tomorrow. I check for responses every hour or so throughout the day. Please post your response after you have checked the solenoid for power.
If you have signal to the starter, then you're either dealing with a bad starter, starter solenoid, or a locked up motor.
If you don't have signal to the starter, then there is an electrical problem between the ignition switch and the starter. It could be a bad ignition switch, starter relay, or wiring.
