The car refused to start, made clicking sounds @ the solenoid and the starter, still had current, the radio was working etc...So I bought a new solenoid which had an extra screw at the bottom where the old...


First, put the old solenoid back on and see if you get the original clicking noise. If yes, you either wired the new one wrong or got a wrong and/or defective part. Your clicking noise can come from several places. First, make sure the battery is good and charged up. Dirty/corroded battery cable ends (yes, even if the lights and radio work), bad connection at the starter, bad solenoid, bad battery cables. A dead starter may engage but not turn, making a kind of click noise too. Take the starter out and get it checked. Remote possibility that it is the ignition switch in the steering column is adjusted wrong or bad. A jump from the positive battery cable to the small post on the solenoid should engage the starter.

Well you have made mention of a few things that I don't believe pertain to your starting problem, but I will attempt to give you some information to get you on the road.
The very first thing I thought of when I started reading your problem was your battery is dead, and it may need to be replaced. Although it could be several other this as well. I would start by checking the battery cable ends. Make sure they are clean, free of corrosion and acid film on the battery cable ends and the battery posts. If they are corroded that very well may prevent the battery from recieving the needed charge while driving and it may take a little time before the results of it shows up.
I guess the next thing I would tell you to do is check the voltage of the battery. It should be a little over 12 volts, something like 12.87 volts if you check it with a multi meter. From what you told me so far it probably won't be. So put your battery on a charger for awhile until it charges up. NOTE: a bad battery won't charge up or if it does it won't hold a charge for long.
To me you problem sounds like a shortage of suffieient electrical supply to start your vehicle, and you probably most likely will have to replace your battery. You can have your old battery tested at most places that sell auotmotive batteries and that's what I would do next.
The clicking noise you had made mention of sounds like to me to be a relay clicking from a lack of sufficient electrical power, thus the battery is most likely bad.
Clean your battery connections first and charge up your battery. If that dosen't do it take your battery to a place where they are sold, like Wal Mart, Auto Zone, ect., and have it tested. I'll bet that's your problem. Anyway let me know how you make out and rate my reply
Thanks!

The battery may need to be replaced, the battery is not holding a charge or you didn't run car long enough. Try boosting again and let the car run for about 1/2 an hour to 1 hr. Then try to start the next day. If it doesn't start you will need a new battery. Even when you don't drive this vehicle especially in the winter time you should start this car and let it run for about 10 minutes once every week. Good Luck contact me if you need more help
