Check your owners manual for procedures on resetting anti-theft system, otherwise check all fuses and fuseable links.

Always disconnect the negative battery cable first, never the positive

Then you have a fuse blown, or relay, or fuseable link.

Remove battery and have it tested at any autoparts store. They will test for voltage and amps.

If OK, install battery.

Next check for 12V at main starter connection. If OK and you are not hearing a click when ign. Is turned to start, then fuse, fuseable link, or relay.

The only other possibility is ign. Switch itself.
