It is most likely the starter. You can test this by lighting tapping the starter with a screw driver or rubber mallet. If the car starts, its simply the solenoid for the starter, if it doesn't start, the starter itself is most likely shot. Best of luck!

I put this starter in back in January, my daughter went to car and triggered the security alarm and I couldn't get it to go off but still was not cranking but power to everything else. I'm a woman I don't know much.
