had the same problem with my 04 fe. after replacing the crankshaft position sensor and the coil packs it turned out to be the ignition module in the steering column. $100 part 1.5 hr labor at the shop.

Starter turns over fine but does not turn the engine? If the solenoid is pulling in enough to turn the starter and the engine does not turn over, you could have broken bell-crank that is not engaging the pinion gear into the flywheel gear. Replace starter.
