F150 STARTER SOLENOID NOT ENGAGING?

2001 Ford F-150

Electrical problem
2001 Ford F150 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Manual 174000 miles

My F-150 will not crank. I thought it may have been the battery, so installed a brand battery, still just makes a single click when you turn the key, and nothing engages or turns. When you turn the key and it makes the click, the lights on the dash go dim or go out. I am thinking it may be the starter solenoid? This truck has had some electrical issues in the past, sometimes the odometer just goes blank and comes back on again. Any help appreciated.

I currently have the same problem with mine. I am going to pull out the starter and test it. If you dont know how to do that you can tahe the starter to your local parts store and they will test it.
