Sounds like a fuseable link blew. Did this happen while boosting the car?

Check fuse 105 (30amp) in the battery junction box (left side of engine) Check fuse 19 (10amp) left side of dash Purchase a cheap voltage meter at a store. (If you have a harbor freight, they are $3.00) Probe the starter, and have someone turn the key to start and see if you have voltage.
