If you hear the solenoid clicking then it sounds like it's good ,but you will have to test it ... With a volt meter put the neg (-) probe on the engine (a good ground connection) ,then put the pos (+) probe on the pos post of the starter (under the little rubber boot) .. Then with the key "on" push the starter button.. If the volt meter registers "12v" then your starter could be the problem..

Sounds like a good starting point ( no pun intended)......i'll try that in the am ..

Yeah, the clicking sound is rapid not just a Click,,,,

Your connection on battery is getting funny, jiggle the cable a bit, and I bet it starts right up! Try tightening them.
