Started to start then died, no lights, no starter sound, nothing...
Is there also no horn, no tail light, and no click at the starter relay when you press the button?
Starter button circuit goes from the battery, through the main fuse, through key on/off switch, through the Headlight fuse, to the starter button, then to the low power side of the starter relay.
Starter motor gets its power directly from the battery through the high power side of the starter relay.
Check the main fuse, check the headlight fuse, check the voltage across the battery terminals when mashing the starter button,
you can check the starter relay by putting the trans in N and then shorting the high power side of the relay (use an insulated handle metal tool) and see if the starter motor starts cranking.
