wow you really fell for that guru thing, we really don't have guru powers, Well most of the time anyway, see if I can get this, you have battery power! meaning the lights work, but when you turn the key it just sits their or clicks, if so first you need a charged up good battery,one dead cell will light everything but not crank the engine, a jump start will tell that much, then go to the connections and see if clean on each end for good amp flow, then if no success its the starter brushes worn out, hit with a small hammer shake the brushes clean and try,
