First try boosting it with your car, if that does it charge and check the battery. If not
grounding issues are very common in electrical problems, but first test the starter by running power and ground directly to the starter(power or + to the terminal on the starter, ground or - to the case), if it does not work its the starter, if it does then we need to check power and ground. First ground, ensure that the heavy ground wire from the drivetrain to the chassis is clean tight and free of corrosion @ both ends, if that doesn't do it move to the power side. Check the wires from battery + to the solenoid and the solenoid to the starter (we know that the starter switch is good because of the tell tale click when you press the starter button so we won't test that), if that doesn't do it its the solenoid.
