check your battery terminals first. if they are clean and tight, disconnect the starter signal wire and jump it to the positive battery terminal. it's a single wire connector at the passenger side rear of the engine bay. right near the vacuum pump. if it still doesn't crank, you will need to do a bypass jump. jump the starter signal wire (small wire) at the starter to the starter motor cable (big wire).
if it still doesn't crank, either the starter is bad, engine to chassis/chassis to battery ground is bad/has a bad connection, or the B+ cable is bad/has a bad connection.

But it doesn't even turn over on the starter - right?

First thing I would do is to Lift Up on the Shifter, a little past Park (and maybe try N)

Sounds like a typical out-of-range NSSW because of slop in the shifter tube or connection to the cable at the bottom...

Bypass worked, changed the starter relay. It cranked right up 3 times and then the same symptoms came back. However bypass jump still worked. After I got it running again I shut it down waited a moment and it cranked back up... Any idea?

why did you replace the relay? you're going to need a starter circuit diagram to continue testing.
