Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There are many things that can cause a no crank condition and it may take some electrical testing to determine what is going on.

The first thing that needs to be addressed is the battery. If connections are clean and tight then the next thing that should be done is try a jump start (not always reliable), swap in a known good battery or having this battery load tested.

Has anything been done with the battery to this point?
