One common cause for the type of problem you are having can be caused by a failing starter interrupt relay. Can you take your 12 volt test light and or volt meter and see if you have battery voltage at the starter on the larger battery cable as well as the yellow start wire from the ignition switch? Check this for me and post back with the results and we can work from there. I have also enclosed the wiring diagram in the link below for reference .
