Default help!

i have a 96 mustang which is a 3.8l. It wont start at all. I've checked my battery and its charged, my car has gas too. When I tried starting it my ignition wouldn't turn so I punched it and then tried turning it over, my accessories come on but when I push in my clutch to start it all that happens is a click and my accessories shut off. Other times when I try to start it my accessories do not even come on at all. Any help or ideas?

How are you checking your battery? Sounds like you may have a bad ground or loose battery cables or ignition switch. I'd lean toward the cables myself, make sure connections are clean and tight.
