Exclamation 95 GT no start issue...HELP!!

so i just bought my car sunday and everything was fine, now today i drive it to work everything it fine, go out to lunch (2 starts) and fine. get in it to go home and it won't start. what its doing is i turn to key to on, everything lights up, i turn to start and everything goes like its going to start but not a sound from the starter. its a 5 speed so me and a co worker push started it and i drove it home without and issue. its acting like the starter isn't getting any power what so ever, i didn't hear the solinoid click or anything, just dead silence. any suggestions on where to start?

Starter solenoid is more than likely the culprit,, turn the key on,,make sure it's out of gear and ebrake on, use a screwdriver to jump across the solenoid if it starts then there is the problem,, if not ,, could be ignition switch itself OR neutral safty switch ,,,,,, you ARE pushing the clutch to the floor, RIGHT??????

no solonoid on the fender only on the starter, its a 95, theres no click no nothing when i turn the key, but everything on the inside of the car acts like normal if i was starting it with the exception of a power draw, so i think that rules out ignition switch and i ruled out the relay this morning so its either the clutch safety switch or the starter/solonoid. anyone know the best way to get to that safety switch, im a big guy and tight spaces don't like me. i haven't quite figure out how im gonna get underneath it to since its lowered 1.5 inches

clutch switch is on the pedal assembly, so if you can jam yourself in there, look on or near the clutch pedal lever for a little switch with 2 wires.

Two bolts, two nuts, unplug wires, and remove seat. Now there is room.

Put a kill switch in car for a buddy. He calls about 6 months later, car will not start. Run battery dead, recharged run just about dead again. He is really fustrated (car is toy not a dd so infrequent use) and asks if i can come help. Ask him about the kill switch to coil. I hear crickets in the background..hello hello? Nice talking to you, later.
