If the Brake pedal switch is the sensor you are referring to, then my solution is redundant. If not, then it is probably your problem. Check your brakelights by pressing the brakes. The signal is needed to allow the engine to crank.
This is a safety type lockout. The idea is to prevent runaway starts. They want to insure that your foot is on the brake before you try starting the engine or putting the vehicle in gear. This part is often hit by a Drivers feet and broken or shifting out of position.
Clean your battery terminals. When you jump start it you are connecting straight to the terminals. You are losing voltage between your battery post and the battery terminals. When you take the terminals off, you can clean everything with battery terminal cleaner. It is a spray that most all auto supply stores have. Before you put the terminals back on, put some dielectric grease on them, also available at parts stores.
I would clean the battery connecters or possibly change them. How old is the battery? sometimes when battery get old, they have enough juice to crank the motor but not enough to start it..But then again, if it doesn't crank at all sometimes, it could certainly be a bad or loose battery terminals..Start with this since its the simplest and easiest and could very well be your problem. hope this helps
Check and load test battery. If good, use a volt meter across both terminals.. when.cranking, volts should not drop below 9.5. If it does, replace starter. No valid starter test can be done unless battery has been proven to be good.
