It sounds like you may be having an issue with your starter. I would recommend having your starter professionally tested with a digital multimeter. This test will determine if battery power is reaching the starter. If battery power is reaching the starter but the starter will not engage, the starter has failed. If battery voltage is not reaching the starter and you are positive that the battery is good, the battery cable that connects the battery to the starter has failed. Consider YourMechanic for this inspection as it can be completed at your home or office.
