Shortage somewhere making car not want to start

check you battery terminals are tightend to the max. also you might need a terminal cleaner, or you can use a wire brush and clean the terminals, to make better connectivity, most batterys only have a life span of max 5 years. also you might need new terminals as they tend to deteriorate over time. try a new battery, new terminals, and see what happens. if not you may need a starter or ignition switch. give me more detail, does it try to start? does it make a clicking noise? does anything turn on ie. lights, door alarm. does your horn work? can you smell anything when you do this? can you hear anything? can you see anything?

With that many problems you should have gotten some error codes generated by your computer. Have you had your error codes read, so that you know where to start? While error codes usually won't take you to the exact problem they do put you in the general area of the problem.

When you replaced the fuel pump did you have good fuel pressure? Or did you not check it? While it does sound like a fuel problem, it could be in the spark system also. So the error codes are important to narrow it down.

My 1996 Silverado does not do anything when trying to start. No clicking or anything. Battery ok. Jumpered clutch switch did not help.

Try hotwiring the solenoid on the starter. Suspect you have a bad solenoid. If hotwire works, problem is in wiring or ignition switch.
