Hi Charles, I’m Louie. Sorry you had to wait awhile but I’ll do my best to help.

Initially, s a review of the basics; have you re-inspected the battery, its ground lines and/or check/clean the battery cables + terminals, connectors and wiring as a preliminary consideration ?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
All clean and good connection
Expert:  Louie replied 5 months ago.

I understand.

What is the battery voltage?

...with the ignition switched on?

...and when attempting to start?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Battery is hot and I tried it with a jump box the key is the starter switch
Expert:  Louie replied 5 months ago.

Does jumping the two (2) big terminals of the starter relay/solenoid engages the starter motor?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
I already try ed all these things
Expert:  Louie replied 5 months ago.

Sorry I have to post/ask as these were not specifically detailed.

Might you perhaps prefer an alternate approach / second opinion from another member of the site?
