I have a ingersoll rand 185 air compressor and it will not start

i have checked the ignition switch, starter protector relay, starter relay and all check out ok. battery is fully charged. i am able to start it by using a screwdriver arcing across the starter relay. but will not start with key.also, hooked up a test light to ground and touched the start terminal with the key in the on position and it started.
