Try it with a push button remote starter switch. One lead on the solenoid and one on the battery, turn the key to on. Maybe the solenoid is bad.

Well, tried the remote starter and no luck. Battery is fully charged. Tried tapping on starter with hammer also. Maybe starter is out?

I believe you an go directly to the starter with a push button starter. Battery to starter and see if it turns over.

no need to try going to starter if cable connection is in good order.using a remote battery put jumper+ cable on engine where positive is now then touch the solenoid cable side( with neg cable) that goes to starter you can use 12 volt for this.if starter is ok this will not hurt but will show if starter is ok.it will spark momentarily when you touch cable to solenoid

However, you want to check the connection on the starter itself. Make sure it is clean.

Success!
After replacing battery cables, solenoid, and ignition switch, my problem was the wire off of ignition switch to solenoid was faulty. Detatched and replaced bad wire with new and it started. This was determined with help from you guys, friends and a test light. Only took over a year! Thank you
