1. turn the key on and 2 use a screw driver to jump the + and - sides.. if it starts your solenoid works....
Atleast thats the redneck way lol.. im sure someone else might be able to help you with voltage readings and stuff
Wow man, that is so totally wrong. First of all there is no negative on the solenoid, just positive from the battery and positive to the starter. Secondly, the old screwdriver trick bypasses the solenoid, it doesn't test it.
Pull the start wire from the solenoid, it's the small one. Jump the battery side of the solenoid to the start terminal. If it cranks the solenoid is good.
