The starter needs 2 powers to work. One at the big cable. That should have power all the time. Then the little when the key is turned. If you have both powers. I would start with check the battery cables. You can test the negative cable by using jumper cables. Hook one to the negative battery terminal and then hook the other end of that jumper cable to the engine block. So black cable clamp end to negative terminal and then the other black cable clamp to engine block. Leave the red clamps hooked to nothing. If motor turns over then ground problem.

now, all I get is a click now. no start
