Possible problem with either the starter or the starter solenoid. Need to test for power flow first to locate what is the problem.

I agree with cb30! Here is one way to test the starter motor. With a good heavy duty pair of jumper cables hooked up, try to crank the engine, if still no crank, have a helper turn the key to the start position while you tap the starter with a hammer or the like, if the engine starts to crank, no need for further testing, replace the starter!!
