2002 Camaro SS Won't Start - HELP! Fuses? Battery? Alt?

Here's the story:

I backed my 2002 Camaro SS out of the garage to clean the interior. Let it run for 15 minutes and shut it off to continue cleaning. Started to rain so I went to start it and put it back in the garage. Had Armor All on my right hand so tried to start it with my left hand. The car behaved normally but my hand slipped off the key mid start. No big deal, went to start again with my right hand and now NOTHING. If I let the car sit a few minutes and stick the key in and only turn it far enough to turn accessories on, they all come on fine. But as soon as I try to start it, there is a big click followed by all the accessories going out and then NOTHING. If I take the key out and put it back in and turn it to accessories, the no seat belt light on the dash comes on but only partly and the ding is weak.

I checked fuses, they seem to be good. Don't have equipment to test relays for starter and ignition, bought one new one from Pep Boys and tried the new one in the Starter slot which didn't work. Swapped new relay to ignition slot and it still didn't work. Tried to jump and it didn't work.

YouTube video of me trying to jump it and exactly how it stand now, what to do? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hZc9RUhhEt8

Go under the hood and check the starter relay, ignition relays. You can swap one of them with the ac relay to check it.
