Try using jumper cables and jumping from the positive battery post to the starter lug where the main cable hooks to the starter. If you don't have jumper cables find the solenoid on the inside of the right side panel. Pull the rubber caps off and jump that with an old screw driver if the engine turns and starts on either occasion it is the solenoid. Part # 192507 sells for about $15.00 at searspartsdirect.com
