If you jump the starter relay, does it now crank? Or not?
If it doesn't, then you've got the wiring to the starter, and the starter itself. Or possibly battery wiring (battery connectors or the connections at the other end of both wires), but a quick test is to turn the headlights on and see how much, if any, they dim when you jump the starter relay.
Check the wiring on the factory service manual, page 8W-44 .
