Please confirm - by "no crank" you mean that it turns over but doesn't start, or it doesn't even turn over?

If it doesn't even turn over, the first thing to try is touching the starter wire under the hood to the passenger side battery to eliminate any electrical issue between the key and the starter. You can find that wire next to the passenger fender well towards the firewall. It has a squeeze fitting that separates to give you a bare wire. Might have to free up some slack in the wire to get over to the battery.

Just to add a little to the above good advice:

The starter solenoid wire is a yellow with light blue striped colored wire, adjacent to the passenger side battery in the engine compartment, near the vacuum pump

Also, check fuse F2.22 (fuse 22 under the dash)

xcrsp440 is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
Check if it is in Park.

The yellow wire with blue stripe trick worked, she fired right up so where do I go from here?

Lol, you reached the limit of my knowledge; I'm lost on electrical issues. But I know there are past threads here that go through the diagnosis and repair. Good news is your engine is fine. Maybe it's not fully in Park? Or whatever senses that is broke? Fuses or relays?

I'd splice into that wire and run it to an extra battery on the passenger floorboard, lol.

See if it will crank in neutral instead of park. If it will, this is caused by loose shift lever that isn't pulling the transmission far enough in park for the neutral safety switch contacts to close and allow it to start. There are 2 bolts up under the dash you can tighten to fix it.

I would lean more towards an ignition or wiring issue.
