If the dash lights up, but no crank, it could be the anti-theft system, or the neutral safety switch, among other things.
Have you tried cranking it in neutral ? Do you have power at the starter post ?
Does everything else work when you turn the key on ?
Hello! There are several components that can cause no power to the starter...Lets eliminate...#1...Do you hear a "click" when you turn the key? It is the Starter Enable Relay...Powered by fuse #17 (15A)...The relay is enabled by the Pass Key Decoder Module... Anti-Theft device...If no click is heard; The fuse is blown, the relay is bad, or the key you are using has a bad chip...#2...If you hear a "click"...The Park/Neutral switch is open/defective...#3...The power cable connection to the starter has a poor connection...
