check your starter out its possible the connections have rotted off. Happened to my audi once when i went to try and start it i got nothing when i looked the wire from the points to the solenoid had rotted out and separated. the symptom was the car would struggle to start most days like it was lacking power. once the new starter was in it cranked over like a dream.
