Sometimes people misdiagnose between the fuel pump and the starter. Try turning your key on 3/4 of the way, wait 15 seconds. This will bring fuel to the front of the car, and will save the starter....if you are continually turning the key to on, but no ignition. If it is the starter, you can take the handle of a screw driver and tap the starter about 10-15 times. This brings it to TDC and see if it starts then. Need some more info, such as what do u hear when u turn the key to on? Describe the noise or clicking . Do you notice how dim or bright the lights are in the cabin? How old is the battery? Are the battery posts clean? or do they have gunk build up? Sometimes you need to drive without any radio or cell phone.....the car talks to you.....just need to listen
