To test if it is the solenoids, disconnect the starter solenoid and use a fused wire to apply battery voltage to the solenoid terminal. Connect and disconnect a few times and if the starter cranks up every time, it is not the starter solenoid nor a fault with the starter.
Quite often the wiring goes bad when they age and if vehicle is not equipped with a starter solenoid, installiing one would do.
When turning the ignition key to start, does the starter click and try to crank or you hear no response at all?
