There are a lot of possibilities. Bad starter relay, Bad ignition switch, bad starter solenoid, bad starter, anti theft engaged. First try hitting the starter while someone has the key in the start position.

I'm going to take a guess and say likely to be in the passenger compartment. Sometime, they are near the glove box. You can also look under the driver side compartment. There should be a plastic protective cap. Use a flashlight.

I had the same problem last week, I took it to the dealer because it was still under warranty. He said it is due to a part that is commonly corroded and needs replacing. I am waiting on the part now. Not sure what it is but I can post when I find out. I am in Wisconsin, so the running boards take a lot of abuse in the winter
