It sounds as though you've taken the correct first steps. So the next thing you have to do is determine weather there is a start signal getting to the starter. For that It's necessary to access the starter and put a test meter on it which is not an easy thing to do on your car. If there is a signal going to the starter, but the starter isn't turning, then you'll need a starter. If there is no signal, than it's going to be back up into the vehicle electronics. By Contacting Your Mechanic, you can have a technician come to your home or office to diagnose your car and tell you what steps you'll need to take.
