Check and make sure fuse,s did not blow from low voltage from weak battery,all so check main fuse under hood in fuse panel,will be 30 amp.There is all so a link fuse going to starter.

If you are certain battery is fully charged,light,s are bright,you may need to check the igintion control module,it tell the starter to engage,if you was running with a bad battery,it could have shorted both the ICG and or your starter.

Jumping off,will kill as tarter all so,check it first,then check the icm.
