Why won't my 2001 Trans Am not start?

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

All the lights come on, but it won't turn over. It is like turning the key with your foot OFF the clutch. No sounds at all. Cleaned battery terminals, and ground wires. I noticed that the radio was actually turning on and off by itself when I was on a bumpy road. Help.

I had a mechanic come test the car that wouldn't start and it started.??? I replaced the neutral safety switch, actually behind the clutch pedal itself. I took it apart and it was corroded. The car started right up, but it started up before I replaced it. Back to the drawing board.
