There is power to the lights, windows, etc. Doesn't even make the clicking sound when attempting to start.
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!!
Possible problem with either the starter or the starter solenoid. Need to test for power flow first to locate what is the problem.
