TIPM (totally integrated power module) is controlling the starter operation. Check the YL/GY between TIPM and starter solenoid for 12 volt power when ignition key switch is turned to START position. If NO voltage then starting control circuit issue at or before the TIPM. If voltage then starter issue or connection issue at battery cables (battery or solenoid).
