Check all battery connections. If all looks good check solenoid wire from ignition. With key held in start position you should have 12 volts showing on it. If not double check connections and check for blown fuses. Also check for power to ignition switch and proper operation of neutral safety switch. Vehicle is in park correct?

He has already done.. one under hood and the 2nd one in the glove box.. is there is another one hidden you think..

I think that's all of them. Not sure about this model car but on some models the fuel pump will not come on unless the computer sees that the engine is actually turning over. That being said I would key on getting the starter to working before I worried to much about the fuel issue. Fixing the one may fix both.

Sorry just in the glove box.. guess I misheard him wrong.. just one box fuse.. OK thanks..

Ok. If you in USA. Auto zone will loan you what you need to test for it. (deposit required but you get it back when you return it). It will most likely.have directions for testing procedure.
