This is going to be the starter or solenoid. Take the starter off and take it to any autoparts store, they will test it for free.

The first thing to do if to determine if the problem is ignition or fuel.
A good way to test the fuel, is to get a can of starter fluid and spray a shot into the intake manifold and see if it starts, but then dies. The fluid needs to be sprayed into the manifold, not the air filter box. Remove the large hose form the filter box to the intake manifold. If you can keep it running with an ocassional spray of fluid, then the problem is fuel supply.
If the starter fluid test don't indicate fuel supply problem, then try this, Get an extra spark plug or pull one out of the engine and lay it on the engine block. Connect the spark wire to it and have someone crank the engine over while you watch for a good blue spark across the plug gap.
hope that helps.........

If the starter turns the engine when you jump from the hot lead to the trigger terminal/ then no further testing is required except that it is possible that the solenoid on the starter may be bad. Usually though they don't go bad all of a sudden and you would have a few weeks where you needed to turn the key a few times before it would engage. You need to check what I mentioned before.

Testimonial: "There is no click, or any kind of response when I try to start it at switch. Thank you, I will try what you suggested. "
SOURCE: car will not start. Brand
Is the ignition switch good? If the starter/solenoid; starter relay, battery and cables are all good that is about the only thing left.
Do you hear a click when you turn the switch?
