Have you actually gotten the battery tested? I had a bad battery that wouldn't start the car, but it would still turn on lights, etc.

Battery is good,with a by pass wire the car starts up no problem,there must be a fault at the ignition back plate or starter relay

switch

check the brake pedal switch, it might not be making good contact. I would put an ohm meter to it.

With an automatic this can be caused by a bad range switch. Try shifting to "neutral" instead of "park." (It still could be the range switch even if this doesn't work.)
