You have to do the testing when the problem occurs. When you turn the key to crank and there is no starter action, the lites dim, a little? Or do they go out?
When it refuses to crank, can you check for voltage at the starter field terminal? That circuit goes from the lower part of solenoid into the starter housing. When the starter refuses to crank, if there is good voltage there and your sure the grounds are good, then you may have a starter problem.
