It is possible but unlikely. See here for troubleshooting a starter. Different vehicle but the same principles apply.
Remember that a low battery charge/bad battery can also adversely affect starter operation. Have it load tested before replacing.

Will not crank over Wife told me it was hard to get the key to turn and unlock the steering wheel

Might have just been there was pressure on the wheel,made the key hard to turn. No pass lock or chip in the key on that so I think if the key turns and feels normal the starter may be at fault,check for voltage at the smallest wire/post at the starter,should go hot when the key is in "start" Position ,or have your wife turn the key and lightly tap on the starter,could be the brushes are wearing out.

Engine will not turn ,battery is new

Stupid statement. make sure the battery hooked correctly. 2ed Turn key to ACC press break put it to drive. Then back to park try to start. 3ed have somebody go underneath the vehicle and tap on the starter as you try to turn it over.FOR SAFTY MAKE SURE PARKING BREAK IS ON. It is possible that your starter bendix is not kicking out. The only other thing I can think of would be igniction switch was bad. In the future please put making model and year. A lot of time that will help us determine what is wrong.

94 bmw 325i wont start, no crank, not a sound, all the lights, work. after i take the key out all the lights continue to flash for about 1 minute

check all the fuses first. If thats not the problem it is very possible your starter is out. If the horn work and all other electric works.....If just some of the electrical works it is a good posibility it is the igniction switch.

It is a starter problem. But before you get the starter repaired/replaced check also the ignition switch. quite possible that it may be defective.

My 97 Honda Civic runs good and up until now, no problems, but when I turn on the key to start it, nothing happens. Have new battery, fully charged, lights on dash do not go off when I turn key to start. ...

Bypass the clutch switch. If the car starts then replace the switch.
If this will not work, then you need to troubleshoot the starter, from the fuse up to solenoid. Might be anything from a bad fuse, bad relay, bad solenoid, corroded starter copper contacts, or a bad starter. Hope this will help.

Checked the battery and starter. Replaced the ignition switch and battery cables and my car still won't start

I'm assuming this is a no crank condition. Bad grounds are a problem with these cars, make sure all grounds are good. If you have a voltmeter, use DC VOLTS and check the starter wire on the starter while someone else is turning the keyswitch to the start position. If readings are battery volts, chances are that your starter is bad. If readings are nothing or very low, then you have to backtrack the electrical system. Go to the power distribution box, look for a starter relay, switch the AC relay with the starter relay and see if the car will start. PS, stay away from parking blocks, the radiator core support is right there, good luck, Gary

It wont start it just clicks and then it starts after awhile my battery is fine i have to keep turning the key in the igniction

the starter needs the solenoid contacts replaced. Find a Alternator/Starter rebuild shop in your area and either take your starter to them to replace the contacts or they make do it for you, its a lot cheaper than replacing the starter.
