Check your battery first,and cables to be tight on it,next have some one jump start you,if it cranks it will be battery,if not check your starter.

Sounds like you may need to check the starter relay,then the starter,all so check your fuses to start with.

Thanks for you responses, my stepdad checked it out for me and found out it was the wire from the ignition to the starter that had broken. Just got it fixed so I'm hood to go.
