does the starter make any noise?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
John, the start will not turn over, when the key is the on position all lights on the instrument panel light up, when I turn the key to start, there is nothing, the start does not turn. What I want to know is what steps are needed to reset the system to start the engine with the airbags still deployed, if you can not answer that question I need someone else.

air bags deployed do not deter starting....is the theft light on? is there power to the starter?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
No the theft light is not on. As indicated previously no power goes to the start when the key is turned to start the engine.
