Hello, do you have a test light by chance? It's very possible your starter has failed. If you have a test light we can certainly test it to see.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The starter was tested at the parts store yesterday. No power getting to it

When you turn the key to the on position do you get a theft light that blinks very fast?

Ok thank you. If you hear the starter relay clicking but aren't getting voltage to the starter. I have seen the actual starter wire break between the fuse panel and the starter itself. It isn't an easy thing to find when you have to dig into the harness.
