As far as the starter, if there is no power to it, cleaning it won't help unless it is the wiring to the starter. Now for the electrical draw, sometimes things short and draw power all the time, even when the vehicle is off. You should check for that. There are directions on our homepage under the DIY section.
Now back to the starter. I need you to check something. Have a helper turn the key to the start position while you check for power to the smaller wire on the starter. You should see 12v in the start position. If you do, it sounds like a bad starter. If you don't, then we need to back track through the starter relay.
Let me know what you find.
