You probably have a dead battery or bad starter. Do you have headlights when they are turned on?

Yes headlights turn on, all electrical equipment works fine, i was told it was possibly the s wire between the ignition and starter because car wont crank or anything

It can still be the battery, even though the headlights and radio work. Try jumping it with another vehicle or jump pack. If it starts you know then it's the battery. If it doesn't start its probably the starter. Check all connections at the battery, starter and fusebox. Make sure they're clean and tight.
