Follow the positive battery cable to the starter solenoid. From here, there should also be a small red wire coming off the solenoid post. Follow that wire until it gets to the fuse.

Check for power at the small wire plugged onto the solenoid while trying to crank the engine. If there is power there and the solenoid doesn't click, then the solenoid is bad.
