You need to remove all of the air intake and other things behind the battery. The start motor is held in with two bolts. You might need a breaker bar to break loose the one bold as I did. Once you remove all of the air intake equipment. This will help you gain access to the starter motor. You might not need to remove all the air intake equipment I know it made it alot easier for me to remove the starter and I took it to the auto store and had it tested.

First try turning on the headlights. If they don't come on or they are very dim then you may need to charge or replace the battery. If they are on then try to spin the engine over, watch the headlights to see if they dim when you try to start the vehicle. If they dim when you turn the key, add a set of jumper cable and try tapping on the starter with the jack handle while someone turns the key over (who ever turns the key over needs to hold it over until the vehicle starts). If the engine spins over then the starter is bad and will need to be replaced. If it does not it is possible that it is the electrical part of the ignition, park/neutral switch, relay or connections.

hi from uk check the main lead from battery+positive to the starters solenoid is secure ? also there is a thin wire that also connects to solenoid on a terminal of its own this is the solenoid energizing wire that works starter when key start position is selected if all above is ok? then use a jump lead and connect one end to battery negative post then the other end of lead to a suitable earth point on engine ? then try starting? if it works/starts ? you have a bad earth connection to engine from battery negative lead check the earth lead connection at point on engine is clean/secure ? it usually is secured by bolt at point where engine and transmission connect ? hope this helps?
