do you have a voltmeter to test the battery voltage? Does it drop when you turn key to start? Do you get any sound from starter solenoid? If not ,locate the ignition fuse and check it.

Battery is fully charged. I also tried testing the fuses with a buzzer. They too are fine

If you follow positive battery cable to the starter solenoid and jump from the cable terminal to the switch terminal on the same solenoid, do you get starter to turn?
