2006 VUE 3.5L
Default 2005 v6 No crank, no start, loud thud

Hey everyone, I'm at a total loss.

My girlfriends 2005 vue will not start. Lights come on battery is at 11.7v which is low but I threw a jump pack on which got it to 12.2v. When I turn the key I hear one loud thud/ clank coming from somewhere in the engine bay but no crank.

It sounds like ether the solenoid engaging or the starter relay (I wasnt able to find any info on a vue starter relay which lends me to believe that it doesn't have one, if you could clarify this for me that would be really appreciated)
I have replaced the starter, checked all the fuses, checked the relay?(or what I believe was the relay) and checked the battery and nothing has made a difference.

I think at this point its the ignition switch but I wanna see if anyone has any other ideas before I go ripping apart the steering column. I don't believe its bad terminals or a bad battery because the jump pack should have given it all the juice it would need.

Any and all help would be greatly appreciated!

As a side note, if I leave the key in the starting position, after about 5 seconds, that thud/clank continues with increasing speed. not sure if this is helpful but id figure id share just in case.

...Just a thought, have you verified the motor actually turns over? put a socket on crank bolt and manually turn it, also check voltage at starter. power wires/connections bad at battery/starter? DC.

Yes, the car has been running for 50,000mi strong then one day it just started doing this.
