With a test light check the small wire at the starter motor and see if it has power when cranking. If it lights when turning the key to crank then replace your starter motor.(Most likely cause)

Check for power at the purple wire on the solenoid-power there while in start position-you have a bad starter. No power could mean the neutral safety switch at the transmission or the ignition switch itself

It was the starter I replaced it with an AC Delco and works great.
