also, if the contacts inside the solenoid are bad, they can be corroded or even worn down to where its not making a good enough connection.

starters rarely go bad and are 9 times out of 10 misdiagnosed and the solenoid/ internal contacts iare the real culprit.

If it turns out to be the starter then tap the solenoid with a hammer or rock, it usually works.

Unfortunately the starter and the starter solenoid are in the same spot.

They have never charged me to check a battery. Just use jumper cables (with your engine running), so there is no chance you kill your battery and then you would be stuck to.
