Question about Cars & Trucks
Yes it sounds like the starter solenoid is worn or you've got a loose engine ground cable. Check to make sure that your engine's ground cables are in good shape, rust free, and secured tightly. The solenoid is part of the starter assembly and cannot be replaced separately.

I have had the exact same problem. There is an ignition lock that probably went off. There is a fuse box under the hood. The fuse that says ignition on it pull it out and put it back in. This should reset the ignition lock. Its a safety feature because the car thinks that someone was trying to tamper with it.

Sounds like a bad ingition switch. When you turn the key it pushes a rod that goes down the steering colum. The switch is located there. It's a pretty simple fix.

Have a load test done on the battery. If it checks out good, take a voltmeter to the battery and have an assistant rotate the engine. If you see more than a 2 volt drop when the car is being started, the starter is heading south.
