Hi this is lostrider, the starter relay is in the battery junction(fuse) box located under the hood, here is a diagram pointing to its location, hope this helps.

Thank you for the reply, if you look at the diagram you will see the blower motor relay right below the starter relay, they are the same relay, you can just swap the relays and see if it starts then, if not look on your dash when you turn the key to the run position at the THEFT light, the light should come on for about 6 seconds and then go off, if the light starts flashing then there is a concern with the Theft system, if all that is good, check and make sure your battery terminals are clean and if you have another vehicle try to jump the 500 off, I have seen a battery do allot of weird things, let me know what you find with the above and then we can go on from there.
