Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

Start first with making sure the battery is fully charged and the cables are clean and tight. If the check okay then take a 12 volt test light and or a volt meter and at the starter with a helper holding the key in the crank position see if you are getting battery voltage at both wires on the starter. If both wire show voltage and it will not crank then that would indicate the starter has failed. Check this and let me know and we can work from there if need be.
