Hi there. When you turn the key and power is supplied to accessories and other vehicle components except the starter, it’s typically due to a failure with the starter electrical relay or the starter itself. In some cases, it can be due to an ignition relay failure - but if you’re able to hear your fuel pump turn on, this will not be the case. It might be a good idea to have a professional mechanic complete a car is hard to start inspection at your location to determine the exact source of this problem so they can correctly diagnose this issue.
