See if this helps you out.
The starter won't crank. If nothing happens when you turn the ignition key to the "Start" position, it means that the starter motor doesn't turn over the engine. Most commonly this could be caused by a dead battery; here is How to check the battery. ... The starter motor itself or a starter solenoid could be bad.13 Aug 2013

Check the braided groundstrap that goes from the firewall to the engine on the passenger side of the engine compartment. I bet its rotted off!

Could be your alternator not being able to spin enough current to start the car. Battery alone wont be enough to start the car. The alternator kicks in and helps. So check the alternator out. Take the alternator out and take it to autozone and they will check it for you for free.

Testimonial: "Thanks for your help. It was the starter & we got it replaced for the 2nd time. Thanks again!!"
It looks like your starter is gone.Solenoid is fine that is why you have lights. Test starter by crossing over with a screwdriver the positive and negative posts on the solenoid.If starter doesnt engage then replace it.

It's your altenator. Replace it. It is not putting out enough power to run all the electrical components of your vehicle, plus a little extra needed to recharge your battery. Hence, the reason your battery ends up dead over such a short period of time. The altenator is also not providing enough power to the theft deterrent system. Your ignition is in place, the key is in there, but there's just not enough power for the "brains" of your car to know it, so since it cannot detect your key, the theft deterrent system takes over and disables the vehicle.
