If all is good as you state it might be the starter. With some one turning the key to the start position check the small wire going to starter for voltage. It should have 12 volts on it when key in start position. If it does no or has less jump back to battery/connection issue ect. If it does and starter does not engage replace starter. Oh make sure the big wire on starter has 12 volts on it too. But the big one will be energized all the time even with key out of car.
