--Could be the starter motor, starter relay, clutch switch and ignition switch-Assuming the battery condition and connections are good.

If the inside lights means the dash indicators, check the ignition switch. While jump starting, if you had clamped the negative cable to the engine, it indicates the starter is most likely bad.

Disconnect the starter solenoid wire and use a remote wie to apply battery voltage to the solenoid and if starter fails to work, it is bad.
