I had the same issue. Come to find out it was the battery the whole time. Car would start with a jump but not on it's own. Had power to everything. Just not enough juice to fire the car up. Changed out the starter and car wouldn't fire up until I put in a new battery. If your current battery is 5 years old or older, odds are that's your issue. If you have a volt meter, hook it up to your battery with the car off. See what you get for volts. Anything below 12, it's time for a new battery. Post back with results......
