Make sure that the fuse didn't blow. If the fuse is good you should make sure that you have 12V going to the fuse when you turn the key to the start position. If you have 12V I would say that the starter is bad. The next step would be to check for 12V at the small wire on the starter solenoid to be sure that the voltage is getting from the fuse box to the solenoid.
