Check the solenoid on the passenger fender behind the battery

Check it with a meter and see if your getting any fire to it or check with a test light

Re: another new guys needs help!!

Sounds like you might need a starter is the starter clicking at all?

Re: another new guys needs help!!

dont go and replace the starter yet make sure all the connections on the starter are tight.
