So, to be clear, you get a single click under the hood with each turn of the key?
I am going to have to agree with you on the starter. It's most common to make a single click. If you can get under it and tap it with a hammer while a helper turns the key it might start for you. That would mean that the starter is bad, but might also allow you to get it to a better place to replace it.
As long as you are hearing some noise, like the click under the hood, that tells me the ignition is fine and the neutral safety switch is also doing it's job.
The starter test doesn't always work, but it might and that will prove it.
