If the engine will not crank over, the most common problem is the starter. These will tend to go out at about 100,00-125,000 miles. Sometimes it is only the starter solenoid, but often the complete starter (including solenoid) needs to be replaced.

    Had to replace starter. But it is so easy on this model. You don't have to crawl under car. Just remove the air box for easy access.
