Hi there, I am Cam. Can I get your first name please?

This could be a faulty starter assembly. What I would suggest with this is to start by having your batteries tested. This is done at a part store with a large tester. IF verified good, and you get the click at the starter when you cycle the key to start, then put a wrench on the engine and verify the engine turns properly. If it does, then we have a faulty starter that needs to be replaced.
