No Start No Crank

Hello, I'm having problems starting my 04 base model. It died out of nowhere when i turned off the car in a parking lot for 5 mins and came back to a dead car. A stranger was able to help me push start the car and I was able to drive it home. I replaced the starter 3 months ago from Autozone, so i thought it might've died again so I exchanged it and replaced it. Still same issue, turn the ignition and its silent, no click from the starter besides from a click from near the steering wheel (i think this is the relay?). I can hear the fuel pump priming.

Replaced the battery more than a year ago (already tried jump starting it, no change)
Changed the alternator like 3yrs ago

I've read the clutch switch might be a problem or the immobilizer from what i researched.

Any other ideas?

So i tried the bypass the clutch switch and it didn't start. But I've noticed that when I try to ignite the car, the radio and a/c turns off but not the headlights
yeah i did, the top yellow plug. i bypassed it to check if i had a faulty clutch safety switch
just tested my starter relay by using my fan relay in its place and it still didn't start still
im using a paperclip. but the paperclip has like a colored coating over it, so idk if maybe that can prevent it from working
the paperclip worked fine. i used a circuit tester and it lights up when i probed the starter fuse box and cranked the engine. But when i connect my probe light to negative and touch the socket thats a constant 12v, my light doesnt pop up. its the socket thats from the battery to starter. The signal wire lights up fine. So I've tested to see if the battery is giving 12v to the starter with my multimeter and it was, so is there something messed up from the battery to the fusebox?
