Doube check battery condition and connections if okay-Check the starter motor, park and neutral switch and ignition switch.

I know this was forever ago but I'm wondering what the outcome was, my dad has exactly the same issue. Won't crank, headlights only. Just replaced the battery & starter.

You have had the battery tested and made sure the battery cables are clean and tight.
