How do you know the battery is fully charged? Did you check the voltage, jump the battery? You can have lights and radio and still not have enough amperage in the battery to start it.

If the battery is good, check for fuel pressure. Do you hear the fuel pump priming?

yes we have checked the batter.. i will check the fuel pump now.. also 2 people (family members) have told me its probally the starter but i hate to mess with it and pull it out and find out thats not what it is.. I am going to check to see if i hear the pump running now
