I tried to start my car and it didn’t even turn over. I replaced the
battery, had the alternator and starter checked, and checked all of my
fuses. Still couldn’t get it to crank at all. My lights worked when I
placed the key to the on position but that was it. It just wouldn’t
turn over. Any ideas would be grateful!!!!!

Just tap the starter with a hammer and it will start. When the brushes
get worn down (or commutator is burnt) the solenoid can't get a ground
so it won't even make a big CLICK. Once you get it going, plan to get
the starter overhauled with new brushes or swapped.
