Check battery terminal posts/connections are clean and firmly attached,
Check battery/chassis/engine ground connection is in good condition,
Check operation of the park/neutral interlock switch is ok.
Check +12v appears at the starter solenoid control when the ignition switch is held in the 'start' position.
If no power to start solenoid trace the circuit back to ignition 'start' switch (via transmission neutral switch) to 12v supply fuse.

Testimonial: "got it fixed it actually ended up being a connection - thanks!"
I have a 2003 pr5 with same symptoms, can you please tell me what connection problem you had to fix?
We've changed the battery, starter, and battery cables.

Have you tried moving shifter slowly through all gears, especially neutral when trying to start ? Sometimes safety neutral switch will become faulty & some movement of shifter may make it turn over.

Check you battery & cables. If top of cables & battery post are green or white. Mix water and baking soda or a coke and pour on the post. Rinse it off if it's was real bad you may need new cables. Sometime you need to remove the cables to clean. Always remove Neg - 1st then you can remove Pos + replace the Pos+ 1st. Should be a 10 mm wrench have a 8mm & a 1/2 in ready just in case. Use safety glasses.
Get a jump start or charge battery. It is likely you have a dead cell in your battery & will need to replace it. Work safe
