Sounds like the battery has no charge left. Did you check the voltage? How old is the battery?

Check connections to battery. Make sure there isnt any fluid build up on surface of battery. If battery is low charge it and try again. The starter takes the most effort from the battery so it is possible to have power on before hitting the key over to start.

It ended up being a bad battery.. I was told I may need to replace the starter once it gets closer to winter?? Idk, I'm just glad to be back on the road. I just put a new transmission in it last month. Thanks :)
