Last night I went to start my car. It has a brand new battery in it. I had power, but the starter/solenoid wouldn't click or turn. When I returned from work, the battery was completely drained. My father thinks the solenoid got stuck and drained my battery. Where is the solenoid located and how hard is it to change?

It's not the solenoid.

First thing is first, you need to do a parasitic draw test on your battery. Something is not switching off and is draining your battery.

It's a brand new battery, and I occasionally here the solenoid click. I changed the starter and solenoid and it works fine
