Hello
Have you checked to see if there is power getting to the small terminal on the starter solenoid mounted on top of the starter motor when the key is turned to the crank position?

Have you tried it down on the starter motor?
How did you check the battery?
Turn on the headlights and try turning the key to start. Watch what happens to the headlights and let me know.

Hello again
Is it possible to run a jump lead down onto the starter?
It sounds very much like a faulty starter to me.
I would like to know what the voltage reading is down on the terminal into the starter when you try to crank it.
