Check battery voltage, it should be minimum 12.4. Check the battery cables for corrosion and make sure they're tight. If cables are ok, check voltage signal at the starter solenoid as you try to start it

An if that don't won't work


Assuming the theft system is not activated, then you keep going back til you find the problem. From there, you'll check if starter fuse is ok, check if starter relay is turning on til you get to ignition switch or chip on your key
