frown 91 Mercury Grand Marquis

I just bought a fixer upper. The car has some issues most of which I have been able to figure out myself. I am not a mechanic but am mechanically inclined and do pretty well sorting out problems. This one has me stumped so far............
I was working on various things on the car today and started and shut it off 4 or 5 times. The last time I tried to start it I got nothing. The radio came on the door open chime came on. I know the battery has a good charge. I was messing with the door panel so I am pretty certain I did nothing to cause it. I just turned the key and it would not turn over. I though I would try to get some advice before crawling under it to remove the starter.

Please Help if you can!!!!!

Make sure connections are clean and tight, check starter relay. If you bypass the relay and the starter spins, then you'll know it is ok.
