Welcome to this forum! I've moved your thread into the stock 91-94 section. Check the battery, and the terminals.

Remove the Starter and Bench Test it with Jumper Cables and a Battery. You must use a Jumper Wire to Jump the Starter Solenoid to Positive Battery Terminal.

Good Luck

A booster pack could be used to test the starter.
