If there's no starter whirring noise . . . I'd start there, with the starter solenoid and the starter itself, by checking for voltage at the wiring terminal.

Perhaps a mod can move this or you can close it and start another in the Tech sections?

Have you checked the battery? What do you mean by doesn't start? Does it turn over and won't catch or what?
