Start with a battery test first before going anywhere. It may a simple repair. Basics first.

If you do not have even a slight click while turning the key, it most probably is not the starter or battery. The immobilizer would be the cause.

Try using a remote wire to jump the starter solenoid with battery voltage to test if it cranks.

All I get is humming noise under the dash. Could it be the ignition switch

Guessing doen not work. You need to perform tests to find out. Get a testlight ready and have you done as advised?
