the starter has two wires going to it. The big one is from the positive from the battery. that's the power to crank the starter over. Then there is a small wire. The small wire is from your ignition switch. Check to see if you are getting power on the small wire when you are starting the car. If the small wire shows that it is getting battery power when in the crank position then look at a bad starter. If you don't get battery voltage when the key is in the start position you will need to follow the circuit back to where there is power and find out where the loss of power it at.
