9-5 Won't Start (Consistently) - Need Help

My 2001 9-5 will not consistently start. I turn the key and the electric systems come on, but there is no engine activity (not even a clicking sound). I have already replaced:

- TWICE Module
- Starter
- Battery

Sometimes the car starts normally; however, this problem occurs sporadically (usually at the worst possible time).

I could use some ideas and help. I posted once before, but I could still use help. Thanks.

there are a couple of relays behind the glove box that are probably bad. I would try them first.

burnsside42 has been having a similar problem with his dads 01 9-5, he has replaced a laundry list of components and it still does it occasionally, maybe he will chime in and tell you what he has replaced, so at least you'll know what it probably isn't!
