Check fuse,s and main relay,if they are good check the starter.

probably a bad relay. Could also be bad cranking amps in your battery. so it may test 12v fine but the amps could be low. try a boost start with a battery charger boost ability it might turn over but i could be wrong. you can also try smacking your starter lightly and then try it again could be a stuck point.
