Cross the sylinoid on the starter,if it turns over,it will be the ignition.

Is that why you changed the battery and starter, or did this problem start after you did that work? If so recheck all connections. Could easily be a loose one, especially a bad ground. If there's enough power getting through to make it click, its unlikely that its your ignition. Also if the battery is new but you haven't had the car running since you put it in, make sure it is fully charged. A new battery should be charged, but you need to be sure. Will it start when boosted from another car?
