Try the starter relay. Its in the fuse box somewhere. Make sure you are getting 12V down on the small wire on the starter when you turn the key to start. May need a helper on that one.

Step one is always check the connections. The battery post is cheap and gets dirty and comes loose easily. Clean it, tighten it and probably best to replace it with a brass one.
