Check your cables. This problem screams of a bad cable. You can test this by bypassing the cable from the battery to the starter with a jumper cable. Also jumper the battery negative to chassis ground. If it fires right up, then you proved the OEM Cable(s) is/are toast. These commonly become corroded within the shielding, and otherwise appear to be good. Corrosion can grow below the insulation and impede the current flow required to start the engine.
