I would check the starter relay/fuse and wiring to the starter. With the key in the crank position (someone holding it there) see if power makes it to the starter solenoid or the relay . BBB Industries have wiring diagrams online under Technical at no charge.
sounds like a starter. if possible without getting hurt maimed or mutilated, try tapping on the starter (best done with a rod standing beside the car) while someone holds the key in the start position. if car starts (works about 50% of the time) it's the starter. otherwise, if all lites come on, radio works, etc but nothing when you turn the key, replace the starter
This sounds like you may have a starter issue. Have someone in the vehicle to try cranking and hold it in this position. You go underneath and attempt to tap the starter with a small hammer to see if it frees it up. If it does, replace your starter. Let me know if you need anything further.
Double check all connections at battery & starter and make sure they are tight & clean. Turn headlights on & have someone try to start & see if headlights dim at all.
Starter should be at lower part, back of engine. Back as in, opposite the end with the pulleys.
On my girlfriends sl1 the engine would not turn over at all and I took the starter off and it was fried! I replaced it and it started right away, but I never had a problem with the lights not coming on.
