2002 Sahara Won't Turn over

this is a 2002 wrangler sahara 4.0 automatic all stock.
Turn the key to run and no radio or wipers, turn to start and nothing but click from starter solenoid and to the right in cab under glove box. I have headlights, turn signals rear wiper and blower motor.
Turns over when jumped at starter with key in on position no start.
Jumper cable from negative battery to block.
This is what I have done to date. Checked ground strap, checked connections on starter, alternator and cleaned.
Bought new battery and cables, Starter, Starter Relay, HBL relay, Ignition switch..any other ideas people?
It does not have a alarm system yet there's a immobilizer box in front of key cylinder..would that be it.

Mission complete

Turns out its was a red wire under the fuse box in engine compartment leads to radio. It had worn itself to separation..lame design on Jeeps part. Mitchell on demand 5 helped tremendously with wiring diagram..all good now
