Is the solenoid built into the starter or external?
Can you safely bypass the solenoid with a screwdriver and have the motor start?

Are all connections clean, tight and of good quality. (i.e. no rotten wire)

Try a slight knock of the solenoid or starter (if internal) with a hammer when the key is in the start position. If it comes to life then most likely the solenoid is sticking.
