Looking into the engine . . . right side near the firewall should be a large fuse box.
Starter problems can be caused by several things: Weak battery because of battery failure or alternator that is not charging the battery. Falty connection between the battery and the starter. Solenoid failure or bad connection on the solenoid. Starter failure. Neutral lockout switch failure. Bad connection between keyswitch and starter.
My suggestion is to make sure that you have a good connection between your starter and your battery. Is the starter even functioning? If not, it is probably a bad starter, a bad battery, a bad fusible link for the starter, a blown fuse, or just a bad connection.

I would check, in order: Dead battery Poor battery connection Poor starter connection Starter solenoid Starter motor
disconnect battery or connection to starter and take it off.
bad starter or bad connection to starter or bad ground on battery or starter
the starter may not be good or the connection on the starter may be loose
Dead battery, corroded or loose battery or starter cables, defective starter or starter solenoid, loose ground connection.
Weak battery or poor connection - battery to starter. Possible bad starter.
It could be battery connection, discharged or faulty battery, faulty alternator or regulator, faulty starter or a loose and corroded connection on the starter.
You either have a corroded or loose battery cable connection at the battery, a defective or drained battery, defective starter relay or starter.
3 reasons either the starter is not getting power from the solenoid, solenoid is not getting power from the battery or starter is burned up.
Several possibilities: 1) battery does not have enough voltage to turn the starter; 2) faulty starter motor; bad battery connection.
poor battery connection or battery itself high resistance in battery cables would be some things to check plus beanch test starter itself
The battery is dead, the connection is bad, the terminals are corroded, the starter is bad, the solenoid is bad.
when your battery is good and starter doesn't turn over engine. try with booster cables directly from battery to starter to eleminate bad ground or positive wire connections.positive cable to positive connection on starter and ground cable to ground on starter and with jumper wire from positive connection on starter touch it to connector on starter from ignition switch . if your starter doesn't turn over , than you have a non working starter.
- Battery no good - Bad connection - starter no good
Starter solenoid. Can be tested by bypassing with a screwdriver. Possible low battery, bad connection at battery and cables or bad starter.
Defective starter or weak battery. Can also be a loose connection at the starter.
Fuses of course, fusible link at the battery, bad connection at the battery, I don't know if a 98 still has the connection on the firewall, a resister, l0 gauge red wire in and out. Bad ignition switch I suppose. Corrosion at the connection in the firewall.
Seized Engine? Loose or corroded battery cables? Loose connection at starter or solenoid? Bad starter solenoid Bad starter? Bad neutral safety switch?
It might be due to a dead battery or to a poor cable connection to the battery.
Check for loose or corroded battery cables Check for loose connection at starter or ground
It could be a bad battery connection, too battery acid could have built up on the terminals. It could be a dead battery. It could also be frayed battery cable, a bad starter, ignition, or starter solenoid.
Weak battery, bad connection Bad starter
Remove the starter power wire from the battery that goes to starter. Starter is between the transmission and engine. Remove the 3 bolts from the starter to the transhousing. Replace new starter re-install the power wire.:) Disconnect the battery first!!! Also, besides the battery cable there should also be a starter switch wire (probably a spade connection).
