    I'd check the ground wire from the battery, make sure it's a clean connection on both ends.

    Check the ground to the valve cover as well cause that was my problem. But when i had my problem the lights flickered and dimmed. Just to be sure i didnt have the same problem i ran a ground wire to the starter just in case.

    Try turning the key but just a step before cranking a few times before really cranking it. Do this a few times, you'll hear the fuel relay click. You might not be getting enough gas. But check the grounds first. Also what's your battery's cca. It's cold outside.

    i don't think it's a ground issue as long as it cranks ! do you have a multimeter ( voltmeter ) ?? check the battery voltage when it's sitting !
