    If the motor is free (turns over) and you know the battery is good / fully charged then there are only a couple possible issues.

    1) starter solenoid is bad
    2) starter is bad

    The solenoid is most likely in the ebox. There are two large red wires going to it.
    >one of the red lugs should have 12+v constant - checked with a meter
    >one will have 0v with a meter
    >push the start button and the 0v lug should go to 12+v (if no then bad solenoid)
