I tried that too....and the starter never jumped over, so maybe there is a short somewhere or could it be the ignition is bad....do you think that I need to change the ignition lock and just start over with a new key for the ignition????

So the problem has been occuring for a year and you are just now trying to fix it? Sorry, I just simply do not understand why people do this...keep driving it until it won't drive anymore even though you KNOW it has a problem....Maybe you can explain this to me???
If you can hear the starter clicking when you try to start it, then you have a bad starter. If it makes no noise at all. then you most likely have a bad clutch switch.
First try turning on the headlights. If they don't come on or they are very dim then you may need to charge or replace the battery. If they are on then try to spin the engine over, watch the headlights to see if they dim when you try to start the vehicle. If they dim when you turn the key, add a set of jumper cable and try tapping on the starter with the jack handle while someone turns the key over (who ever turns the key over needs to hold it over until the vehicle starts). If the engine spins over then the starter is bad and will need to be replaced. If it does not it is possible that it is the electrical part of the ignition, park/neutral switch, relay or connections.
try to check the battery if voltage is adequate. If it checks out OK, you may want to check on the connections, the ground wires and wiring that leads to the starter, the starter relay and the ignition. It may also be the starter relay.
