Sounds like you have a problem with the starter it's self. Check that the wires going to the starter are clean and tight. If they are good then get a helper to turn the key to the starting position and then you hit the starter with a hammer. If it starts the brushes are sticking and it's time to replace it.


Had the same problem, starter was perfect ,battery good, jumping did not help. The cure all was the ground strap from engine to the body was not making connection properly. scrape the paint down to bare metal on the body and secure properly, problem solved
