key has to be on for it to start, the rest sounds like starter solenoid.
disconnect the starter wire then listen if you hear it click when you turn the key, it should be a noticeable click or clunk when it activates.
if its activating then the wiring is good and the contacts inside it are bad, if its not clicking then you have to trace the wiring bad to the switch and see where it is bad but first, save a lot of trouble by checking if the main fuse isnt blown
You can only learn if you ask the question, so there are no dumb questions.
