When I try to start it, it won't turn over. The lights come on, and the battery is fully charged. I have even turned the key on and "jumped" the starter with a screwdriverythen it turned over but would not start

Ok, so whats happening here, is your car thinks its "stolen" and shuts off. You would need to have the vehicle scanned, and pull any codes related to the BCM- body control module, your security system will trigger a code there. It may have to be towed to a garage, unless you know someone with a professional scanner such as a snap-on modis, or an OTC genisys.
