Best Answer

The solenoid is connected to the starter and for the backyard mechanic if one is bad they both are bad. When you purchace a new starter it will have a solenoid attached so dont worry. Getting your hands on just a solenoid for that vehicle might prove to be a chore. I'm having the same problem and wanted to ask the same question about a 92 Sable 3.8. I'm thinking that if you don't hear a click when you turn the key it may be that the solenoid/relay is bad. I checked my solenoid with a tester and it is getting juice so I still don't know for sure if it's the starter or the relay but I'm thinking more towards it being the relay because I don't hear any clicking sound that the relay usually makes... Can anyone expound on this and help me out??? I'd appreciate it... Thanks.
