Grab a screwdriver and touch one post on the solenoid on the drivers side fender then while still touching that post, touch the other post, make sure your car is in neutral or park before you do this!!

I had the same problem after i put the new engine in my car. The solenoid went. Also check the negative battery lead that connects to the battery. You will have to tighten u where the wire connects to the terminal thing. Make sure you clean the battery terminals and leads

If the battery is fully charged and does not have a dead cell, then your starter solenoid or switch must be bad.

When jumping the solenoid, jump from the large cable connected to the battery to the small terminal marked "S" on the solenoid. Make sure the car is in park if auto trans or out of gear with the emergency brake on if manual. Be sure to turn the switch on if you want to start the engine.
