Car doesnt attempt to crank

I just finished installing my differential and now the car doesn't even attempt to start. I had a race battery in it that was weak so I swapped it out with a fully charged regular size unit , all lights turn on but the solenoid doesnt even click!
I tried to jump it , tried leaving the key on for 10min, unlocked everything with the fob, pulled the cables and the ecm cables....no change.
I've checked every fuse , swapped relays around and I cant even get a click.

Out of ideas , short of replacing the starter but I cant see why a functioning unit would just fail all together.

Oh and no security light on...

Check the terminal at the starter relay to see if it gets voltage when the ign key is turned, the one that commands the relay to activate.

Check the clutch switch, make sure it's not as simple as something stuck under the pedal (floor mat) not allowing it to go down all the way. It happens. If it's visually ok test with a meter or jump it out. There are two switches, one for starter safety and one for cruise disengagement, so look at the right one.

It's the one right above the master cylinder pushrod. Contacts should close when the pedal is fully depressed.
