Question about Cars & Trucks
You mean when you turn the key you hear buzzing sound but starter is not turning motor?
Sounds like automatic decompressor valve not activating on cam and starter motor cannot/will not be able to turn crank against compression. see if you can spin the motor by hand. If not you need to replace valve decompressor gear inside motor.

Have a load test done on the battery. If it checks out good, take a voltmeter to the battery and have an assistant rotate the engine. If you see more than a 2 volt drop when the car is being started, the starter is heading south.

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.

make sure the battery cables are in good condition. Also check to see if the negative battery cable is securely attached to a good ground.
