When you turn on the ignition switch? does the instrument cluster light up? and are the headlights bright? If so, try putting the transmission in neutral and seeing if you can crank it in neutral.

Alright, The next step, is to verify power to the starter signal wire at the starter motor with a volt meter or test light. Here is the wiring diagram, if you have power to the RED/BLUE wire at the starter motor with the key in START position and a battery that's good, then it will likely need a starter motor itself, you can take it off and have it tested, or give it the hammer test with somebody holding the key, that works sometimes, but you really need to verify power to it with the key in START position to be sure it's getting power when it should. here is the wiring diagram showing the circuit. It will probably need a starter motor but need to double check the circuit first. let us know if you have any further questions. Thank you.
