Remove the spark plugs and try to crank it. If it will then crank look for coolant spurting out of the spark plug hole(s). If that's what you see you've got a blown head gasket and one or more of the cylinders has coolant in it. Since coolant won't compress the engine is hydrostaticly locked. HTH. -Jim

Try this, turn on the headlights and try to start it. If the lights stay nice and bright it's the starter or neutral safety switch. If they dim, flicker or go out it's a bad battery, battery cable connection, or the engine is locked as mentioned above. HTH. -Jim
