I am sorry your having this problem
the odds are if the starter is bad it is best to just change the starter complete as one piece v/s just the solenoid
before you change the starter you need to see if when the key is held to crank if the purple wire at the starter shows 12 volts ?
if so and the battery is good and the battery cables clean and tight then replacing the starter should correct this problem
if the purple wire does not show 12 volts when holding the key to crank then starter relay could be bad or possible bad ignition switch or neutral switch on the transmission
