Check the voltage on your battery first, post back your result, you want over 12 Volts. We can proceed after you check it with your multimeter.

Did that, thanks. I finally tore into it, checked relays, ignition switch, and ended up being the starter. Thanks for your response.

Got starter replaced, still no luck, found crack in ignition switch and replaced, still no start, turned key on and jumped starter and car started. Can hear relay clicking. I'm stuck:(
