Did you turn the engine by hand, to make sure thats not a problem?

if it were antitheft it would crank turn on for a second then shut back down.

starter jumped with hand held switch , engine turns with starter like normal, something is not allowing the current from ignition to starter

Try resetting the alarm by unlocking the car with the key in the passengers door or hatch-- may have issue in drivers door lock mechanism.
