The starter is the most likely problem with your no crank condition. I would check for proper power getting to the starter main power cable and also a good signal to the small wire at the starter from the ignition switch. Most other owners had a bad starter but I would recommend a certified mechanic check the cables so you don’t replace a starter when it could be something else. Get the problem diagnosed by a certified technician to save you from replacing good parts.
