The flywheel has nothing to do with starter not cranking. The starting circuit has a problem and some testing is required.
Is this a manual or automatic transmission?
Is the security light (if equipped) blinking in dash?

Is engine 3.8 L or 4.6L?
Is the security light (if equipped) blinking in dash?
Is security system factory or after market?

Thinking and guessing don't solve problems. Diagnosis is required and the correct information is necessary to get uson the right track.
