Jeep wont start, click, or turn over.

I've had this problem before where my Jeep wouldn't start. I drive a '93 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Everything turns on. Lights etc. the fuel pump pumps in the on position. But. When I go to start it it does nothing. The battery is good and I brought a screw driver to the starter and it sparks. What could the issue be and what should I check?

I would pull the starter. If you jumped the solenoid and it did nothing then something in it has gone south.

Thanks mate. My uncle said the same thing. I'm gonna get a starter tomorrow and throw it in there. Hopefully that's it so I don't have to spend more money.

Yep, put her in neutral and wiggle the shifter as you try to start.

You got sparks with the screwdriver, but did the starter turn or not ?

Just got it started gents/ladies, I don't know you people personally. The problem was corrosion on all the negative grounds. I got the starter tested and it was strong. I brushed all the negative grounds and made them nice and shiny and now it starts better than it did before. Thanks for the help. I will definitely remember your opinions in the future if I ever have this issue again.
