Look for a starter relay under the hood in the fuse box. Remove it and jump terminals 30 to 87 with a stretched-out paper clip or piece of wire. Be sure it's in park if you have the ignition switch on. If it cranks that will prove the battery, starter, high-current wiring and starter solenoid wiring are all okay. That just leaves the transmission range sensor circuit which to complicate matters is incorporated into the Engine Computer.
Instead of jumping the terminals in the relay socket, you can also pop the cover off the relay, install it that way, and squeeze the contact.
