Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!
Ground to the starter relay comes from the transmission range sensor through the brown/yellow wire at pin 3 of the solenoid pack connector on the left side of the trans. What you'll need to do is check for ground there, if there is ground at the solenoid pack connector but not the relay then there is an open circuit in between.
If there is no ground at the solenoid pack connector and connections are good then the solenoid pack will need to be replaced assuming it's fully going into park, the range sensor is part of the solenoid pack.
