Battery is charged and I did try to jump. I also cleaned the terminals.

Have you tryed turning the engine over by the crank bolt just to make sure it did not lock up?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
Yes. Could it be a relay or the starter??
Expert:  Chad replied 5 years ago.
Sounds like the solenoid on the starter has gone out. And the starter will need to be replaced.
I just wanted to make sure the engine turned over by hand and the battery had enough cranking amps before saying you need to replace the starter.
