Hi. Have you just tried jump starting the battery? Have you checked the starter relay?

Have you checked for power on the small wire at the starter with the key in the CRANK position?

Have you checked fuse IGN 2 (30amp) under the hood yet?

Expert:  EricFromCT replied 1 year ago.

If that fuse is good, you need to remove the starter relay. You should have power on 1 terminal with the key on. And with the key in START/CRANK, a different terminal will have power. That is what you would need to check next.
