PLEASE find the starter. Obtain a 12 Volt, DC, test light. Eye have seen this, B4. Check the Ignition switch. Run a hot battery wire, to the Solenoid. Car should crank and start.

Eye have seen this also. If, U can hear the starter, either the flywheel teeth are worn off, or the starter is not meshing. I have seen the wrong starter, also. Should be an easy fix, U have replaced everything. On Gm cars, it is, the starter shims.
