Hi welcome to just answers my name is Ricardo. if your battery terminals are clean and tight, there can be a number of things that can cause this problem the most common one is the PCM not allowing crank do to a shorted sensor , or a safety neutral switch shorted internally , but to be sure of what direction to take you will need to have the computer scanned for codes can you do this ? and come back with the codes it will make finding the problem much easier.
