Usually when I have seen this problem it is located in the wiring or ignition switch. A good mechanic can bypass both, one at a time, to ascertain the actual problem.

Also, check the wiring down by the starter. Usually a catastrophic failure like this is a bad connection at the starter. One more thing. Check where the ground cable (-) bolts to the chassis or engine. That connection must be clean and tight as well. HTH. -Jim

Js08016 is correct, also check thw wiring down to the starter and the ground. Sorry that I was not more specific when I said check the wiring.
