Check to see if 30 amp crank relay has voltage, if so then it sounds like purple wire going from fuse box to starter is broken somewhere. Access purple wire where it goes into fuse box to see if wire has voltage with key in start position. If wire has voltage at fuse box but not at starter then run a new wire. Here is a wiring diagram of system to help with testing, let me know if you have questions. Thanks.
