Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

You may have several things going on and it's going to take some electrical testing to determine the cause of the problem. You could have an ignition switch, range sensor, wiring or starter issue, it could be a cable or connection problem, and it could definitely just be a dead battery.

How did you determine the battery is good?
