Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There are several things that may be going on and it will take some testing to determine the cause of the no crank condition. It appears hat the ignition switch signal is being sen, the problem could be the starter itself, starter relay, a transmission range sensor related issue, cables and connections, it's possible that the engine is with the engine controller or wiring.

Has any testing been done?
