Make sure the small wire on the solenoid has a good contact. If it does, check that there is +power to there when trying to start. If there is power and a good contact, and the starter still won't crank, try shorting the two bolt terminals on the solenoid (carefull, it will spark). If the starter cranks then it's okay, suspect solenoid.If the solenoid is okay you should hear it kicking in.

If it just clicks when you try to start it then you need to check the battery and alternator. The anti-theft system wont even crank the solenoid.

Did you got the ignition switch checked.If ignition switch itself is getting short, then it will not let the car to start.Also get the voltage at starter relay checked.If the starter relay is short, then it will not let the car to start.-------------
Test the voltage at starter.If there is proper voltage to starter this will confirm, whether the relay is issue or not.-----------
test the starter try this procedure.
--------- Measure the voltage at the starter solenoid. Place the red probe on the positive battery terminal on the starter solenoid and place the negative probe on chassis ground. Have someone turn the key switch to "START" while you measure the voltage.The voltage should be approximately 12.6 volts. If the voltage is correct, there is a problem with the starter. Remove the negative battery post and check the connections on the starter.But if voltage is very low and less that 12 volts, this indicates its faulty solenoid.If you follow the wire from starter solenoid, it will reach the starter relay.That starter relay is a 12 volt part.If there is no voltage to starter or solenoid then its faulty starter relay.---------- The ignition switch is also a 12 volt part.Check the voltage at ignition switch wiring harness, there should be 12 volt.If not the switch is the issue.-------Also try wiggling the key in ignition key lock cylinder , many a times the lock cylinder gets shorted or out of line or bit loose internally.--------- Getting this possibilities checked will point towards the faulty component causing the problem.-------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Hi, what you would need to do is check the ignition switch to see if it is passing power to the start wire. If it is, then the wire from the ignition switch to the park/neutral switch is bad. You can trace the wire up to the ignition switch from the park/neutral switch. It's bolted to the side of the column and is not hard to swap out. Cost is only $10.
