So did it die while you were driving?Or just a no crank no start one day?The first thing I would check even though the light's are coming on is have the battery tested. Also make sure the battery cable's are clean and tight. Do you have a multimeter to do some testing?

Also I checked the fuses under the hood could it be a fuse inside the car?

The first thing's you need to check is the basic's like have the battery tested make sure the battery cable's are clean and tight. You can also check the all the fuse's if you want. So you have dash light's etc?If so I would check your inside chime fuse.

Ok you said the engine wasn't turning over so the fuel pump wouldn't have anything to do with the engine not turning over and stater just clicking. But glad you got it figured out.

So you don't know it's the starter for sure?At least test if you have full battery voltage going to the purple wire on the starter when you turn the key to the start position. Also make sure the positive battery cable is tight and has full battery voltage to it. Also make sure the engine is frozen up.
