Yes could be the solenoid as well as the starter and/or other things like the ignition switch and/or anti-theft module or aftermarket alarm

I changed the starter and it still will not start

Can you tell us what happens when you try to start it? Is there any noise at all? If there is no noise (no cranking) be sure you:
1. Have a strong battery (this is the most common issue). Your battery may seem like it has power because it will light the lights/radio etc. but that doesn't mean it has enough juice to crank the engine. Try a jump start with a known good battery and see if it starts. If it does, you need a new battery. Once you have verified your battery is good be sure to verify that your alternator is working correctly. You should have at least 14.5v at the battery when the engine is running
2. Check all your fuses
3. Verify you are getting 12v at the starter when you try to start it. If not, then there is an electrical issue somewhere between the ignition switch and the starter.

Location relay

no model Honda stated, nor year, 1973?
my guess is
car fails to crank, am i right,?
ask how to trouble shoot NO CRANK (easy)
if engine CRANKS, ask who to trouble shoot that (longest book on earth)
ever clean the battery lugs this decade?
no crank, does car have A/T o r M/T tranny, not stated.
did jumper starts or known good battery (fully charged) crank motor fast (y/n)
yes, bad battery
no, bad cranking system. (its a system not 1 part)

cranking dead.
i hot wire the starter, soleniod.
motor cranks but dont start (cuz keys are in my pocket for safety)
no crank is bad starter or bad battery cables
cranks fast. starter and crank shaft on engine spins normal
cause,bad key line.

post results. we can work a bad key line, after post tranny type.
the above cuts the problem in1/2.
1: bad cranking system.
2: bad key line.

if battery is just discharged, its a bad battery or bad charging system.
owning a charger solve this as is using a voltmeter on battery after a good start.

1986 ford f350 won't start

The solenoid click sounds very strong, implying that you have a charged battery and the ignition circuit is functioning out to the solenoid. Suspect an issue with the starter motor. Is the starter motor installed and connected properly?

Won't turn over

Even though all your other electrical bits are working it could be that your battery doesn't have enough juice to crank the engine. It doesn't take much power to run the radio, lights, etc, but cranking the engine requires the battery to have a very strong charge. If your battery is more than 5 years old, that's very likely the issue. I'd start there. Also, be sure to check the battery terminals and ground for corrosion and clean if necessary. If replacing the battery doesn't solve the problem it could be the starter solenoid or a loose electrical connection somewhere.

I have an 87 volvo 240 but i cannot get it to turn over

has it been standing for any length of time is the battery ok can you crank the engine by hand with a spanner on the crank wheel makeing sure the engines not seized check starter as this is the main thing to check if there is nothing at all and all dash light seem strong i would go for starter first you can check this by taking it of and putting to battery but keep a good hold on it as it will turn with a bit of force hope this helps ivan

Hard to start, slow cranking. Has new battery ~ alternator appears to be okay and starter seems strong. Could there be a relay problem, if so how do you trouble shoot?

I had a car that had the same problem and i replaced battery like you did and decided to replace starter and that fixed it

The battery seems strong. at first it the starter "clicked" continuously but would not engage. After several times, it now clicks once and the dashboard lights flash while the key is engaged.

If your battery is dead thats how it does, Just clicking, But if you are sure the battery is strong then Take a hammer and tap little bit on the starter while somebody is cranking or just tap on it then crank it yourself. Good luck

1999 chevy blazer has trouble starting from a cold crank

If your engine is cranking really strong make sure you have proper engine timing. If your engine is having a hard time cranking like its cranking really slow. You probably need to check your battery.
