Rotate engine by hand to make sure engine us not locked up. If it rotates, check battery voltage, sould be minimum 12.4vdc. If battery is good, check battery cables for corrosion and make sure they're tight. If everything checks out ok, check voltage at the starter solenoid signal terminal when you try to start ut. If you have voltage when you try to start it, replace starter
