So, you have been shorting the solenoid to start it? What's wrong with the start switch. You replaced the solenoid, was it a factory part? No spark now would mean the battery cables, connections or solenoid are bad. Don't forget to check the ground wire. You'll need a VOM or a test light.

I'm having the same issue as well. Seems like I have voltage everywhere I'm supposed to, solenoid is good, connections are clean, battery is fully charged... Like there's no life in it.

No clicking, nothing if I put a wrench across the solenoid posts either.
You should start your own thread.

But since I'm here, you have a battery, connection or cable issue. A common problem is corrosion in the battery cables. Yes, you'll read 12volts, but it won't pass any current. Take some jumper cables from battery ground to the starter body ground. Then the other cable from battery positive and the other end to jump the solenoid.

If you get a spark and cranking, your cables or connection are bad.

If you don't get a spark, your battery or connections are bad. Try jumping from the wife's car.

Sorry, I see you do have your own thread. Test as above, but chances are you'll need a new wire harness form the correct year(s).
