What is full model number? You have voltage to the key switch? You hear the fuel solenoid click when you turn key on and off? If yes, keyswitch has voltage, if no click from fuel solenoid, check the fuse under the steering column. If you have voltage, be sure and check the seat switch, much more common failure than the brake switch.
