Hi Georgiaoneal,

Give the starter some knocks to see if is of any help.

Did you test the battery condition?

Did you check the battery terminal installation?

Does the dash indicators lights stay biright or go dim when turned to START?

I have checked the battery, clean the posts, the battery is fine, the starter has been knocked, the lights all come on when the ignition key is turned but it makes no sound. Not even a click. The dash lights come on but no sound when you turn the key.

Here is a wiring schematic with a description of the component location. Check the starter relay, try swapping it with any other that is similar, to test.
