    Try removing the small wire from the solenoid. Then use a jumper wire between the battery positive post and the terminal. The system will crank if it's able to.
    Also check if you have power to the small wire when you turn the key to start. If not a safety system is probably acting up.

    I would just have the dealer pick it up (as your trade in) when they drop off your new one. lol lol
    Then it's there problem. Isn't that the reason most people trad things in? To make it someone else's problem. lol

    Oviously the small wire didn't have power when the key was turned to start/crank.

    That's the easiest test to run when you have a no crank issue. It works on a lot of different equipment, cars and trucks. Just have to be careful because you are bypassing all the safety systems. If you have a manual transmission in gear away it will go. lol
