The starter has a fuse and relay in the fuse box under the hood, start there

Does that model have a solenoid on the fender well the power has to go through the solenoid to the starter. Jumper the solenoid see if it cranks

No, the solenoid is on the starter

If the term "doesn't crank" mean the engine does not spin when the key is turned then the problem is between the battery and the starter. If the term means the engine turns but will not start it could a a myriad of things.
