get a test light and turn the key on test the ignition wires to see if they have power going to them before you spend any money

Check the voltage at the battery first. Should be 12.0 volts or more. If it is less than 12 volts charge the battery. Is the engine turning over? Is it making a clicking sound. Need more information.
