Need a little more information please, What do you mean by your getting power? I am assuming you turn the key but it will not crank over but the lights on the dash come on? If you have a no crank issue first test the battery to verify it is ok. You can remove it and go to any parts store to have it tested. If it is ok then verify you are getting battery voltage at the battery cable to the starter. If no battery voltage check cable for high resistance or loose cable like at the alternator? If you do have battery voltage at the starter cable then with the help of an assistant measure the solenoid wire for battery voltage while the key is turned to the start position. You should see battery voltage. If you see battery voltage manually turn engine over to verify it has mot seized up. If ok then starter is defective. If there is no voltage to solenoid wire when turning key to the start position let me know so I can post up some wiring diagrams. Good luck and keep us posted please.
