Have a puzzling problem. Just went to start the car and all I get is a buzzing sound under the hood. Check engine light on, no starter engagement. Buzzing coming from a black module on top of air intake it looks like. Anyone have ideas?

Battery charged and even tried a boost, no crank at all. With key on, all the warning lights are on it just does nothing when I turn the key to the start position?? Checked all battery connections. Hate to get it towed for repair if someone knows a simple fix that they've come across. What would cause a no crank condition? Thanks all!!
