you might wanna try replacing that starter.

Might be a better idea to have it tested at a parts store first. The fact that you can short it to start it makes it sound like it's not getting power when the key is turned, I would start by checking the starter solenoid. Should be testable at the parts store as well. If you have a multimeter, can you give us the voltage across the battery?

Your Ing switch has gone bad. It needs to be replaced.
