Cranking is turning over. When the starter operates it's turning over the engine internals. What you probably mean is it won't fire

Start with a blast of starting fluid or pour a little gas down the carb/throttle body to rule out lack of fuel, then move on to spark.

If it won't turn over you should be looking at the starter, solenoid, battery, and cables, not the igniton. Ignition is responsible for spark, not for cranking/turning over.

Does it make any kind of sound when you turn the key, like a "click" or anything?
