turn the ignition on and run a jumper wire from the small terminal on the starter it is usually a purple wire to the battery cable that runs to the starter if the engine starts then you got a bad solenoid on the starter or the purple wire is broken. to check the wire you will need a test light and someone to turn the key to the run position if you got power on the purple wire then you need a starter
