SOURCE: wont start
There's only 2 more things that I can think of, check the fuse for the ignition, then the computor itself, you did everything else.It might be the problem and may not.

My first check would be the ignition switch,take a volmeter lead to the solenoid lead and the other to chassis or negative lead of the battery,no volmeter you can use a 12v test light, and have someone turn the key as to start it,you should get a 12v reading,if not the ignition switch is probably bad

You have no power from the switch to the starter. Check all you wiring that goes through the fire wall and look for burnt connections or just bad connections.

Well, not necessarily need a professional if you have some basic maintenance experience.
If you look at the engine compartment from the front of the car, the switch is located at right side, very close to the radiator, close to the bottom of the car. You will see the shifting cable as well as an electronic connector on it. You can try if you shift, the cable will rotate the arm on the switch.
According to my experience, it's not easy for the switch to go bad, it may just need some alignment so the switch angle is zeroed in wrt the contact points. There is a line on the switch for alignment purpose.
To replace it is not difficult at all, once you located it, you will see. You can get a used one at junk yard, I believe it will be much much cheaper.
