If battery and starter are confirmed ok then I would be looking at the ignition switch. Pop the cowling off and check for power in to it and then see if it puts 12v out when in the start position

From your symptoms and the fact that you've got a 2.3 petrol it sounds like a relay 30 issue. If you find the tag cloud at the bottom right hand side of the main board index page of this forum and click on the relay 30 tag it will take you into some related threads which will give you more info.
