Double check battery voltage, battery connections and frame / block ground connections. All connections need to be clean and tight.

Also check connections at solenoid and starter. If none of that helps check for voltage at starter with key in the start position.

You should probably inspect the ignition , maybe it's only sending the signal BACK (dashboard) instead of actually to the Starter. May also want to check the battery cables...
