Surf the net on how to check the solenoid/relay mounted on the fender-well of the vehicle, near the battery. It is nothing more than a high amperage switch being operated by a low amperage circuit. If it check's OK then you will have to check for voltage coming from the ignition to the solenoid/relay which engages the circuit when the key is turned to start. TST's suggestion should be conducted first as it is the simplest to do.
