Question about Cars & Trucks
My first thought would be to change the hot lead from your battery to selenoid n starter. Its a relatively easy and cheap fix to a big problem that just gets bigger with time.

are you referring to the starter relay on the firewall? the voltage should drop to 0 when measuring across the signal path because the connection is made, essentially making it a piece of wire and there is no difference in potential between the two points. is there 12v to the starter motor? is the starter solenoid (located on the starter) receiving 12v? check fuses and fusible links. disconnect hot leads from the starter. remove the starter, and supply 12v directly to the motor. does the pinon gear extend and spin? starter.

sounds like the park pawl switck assembly located in the selector assembly in the car or on the side of the transmission could just be out of adjustment

hi, on most newer than 2000 vehicles, there is a computer cut out to the starter solenoid performed by the security system or theft deterrent system. also the pcm(powertrain control module) or engine computer does have an ignition sense circuit designed to control various functions. perhaps the ignition switch could be causing the problem, bad connection could be the case there. if the theft deterrent system is causing it, the security lamp may or may not illuminate. it maybe stored in the pcm memeory diagnostic codes only. you may want to take to repair shop. .... one more thing to check, if your key has a diode in it(looks like a black chip with a wire through it) check it closely to make sure it is not dirty or wet, or any other contamination of it. the diode is of specific ohms value and if any of the above mentioned things occur to the key, it will lock out the security system. good luck.

Sounds like the connection to the battery may be dirty. Check the connections and clean as necessary using a stiff wire brush. Be sure to make the contacts look shiny and new with the wire brush, or else a no start condition.
Charge the battery for 3 days on a home charger to make sure it has enough of a charge.
If the starter tests ok on the bench, then the starter is ok.
Good luck on this repair.
