Does it crank,but not start or does it not try to crank?

It doesn't crank

If it does not crank, it could be the starter. Check the starter for voltage at the starter solenoid terminal with avolt meter. Ignition needs to be on, but you do not need to crank. If no voltage, start looking for fuses or wiring issues. If voltage, make sure it is AT LEAST 12.5 volts - if so, the solenoid may be stuck, give it a hard tap with the handle of a hammer. If your voltage is lower than 12.5, put the battery on a charger overnight - your starter may not be engaging because the battery is low.
