Check all your cables, make sure they are all clean and tight, none of the black corrosion, if that checks good then you will have to start checking for battery voltage at the main starter connections while the key is in the crank position, if the powers are good then the starter has failed, if the power is not there then backtrace the wiring until you find the source of the interruption and repair as needed.

Sounds like a bad starter or wiring

Sounds like a bad starter solenoid Get a manual and see how to change it The manual will also have what else you Should know about your vehicle

Check battery ground to frame first
