Could be a bad battery or your battery cables could be loose or corroded so there is little power getting to the starter.Check all battery cables at both ends and might even have to take the cables off the battery and clean the connections hook up to the battery.

Remove the small wire from the solenoid and hook up the battery. If the starter engages the solenoid is stuck. If the solenoid does not engage the starter with the small wire removed, check the small wire for a short to power.

Put in a new starter and hook everything back and now it wouldn't started or even not crank over at all, there power from the batterie to the starter, and still nothing

Either the starter is bad or the small wires aren't hooked up or hooked up right. You must be getting power to the small stud on the starter with the "S" next to it when the key is in the start position. Also, try holding the key in the start position and move the gear shifter slowly from "P" to "1" and jiggle it in "P" and "N."

You need to recheck your wires that you hooked up when you replaced the starter.You possibly have some that could be touching each other.If the the positive cable touches the purple wire on the solenoid the engine will turn over when you hook up the battery.Check your wiring very carefully.Hope this helps.Good luck.
