96 PSD Doesnt Crank Over

Tried starting my truck last night and all i got was a click, my first thought was that it was my started because i checked my battery 12.7 volts, and im getting power to the starter 12.7 volts there too, the only thing is im not getting any power to the control wire on the starter that is supposed to engage the solenoid on the started. i checked the solenoid thats on the passengers side fender and when the key is in the start position i am getting power on both terminals there, and i know its not the starter because i took a jumperwire and jumped it between the hot side on the starter and the control wire on the solenoid on the starter and it took right off. Does anybody know if there is any connection of fuseable link between the starter on the fender and the starter.

Thanks

it's just the selenoid on the fender. they don't just go they will work sometimes and sometimes they won't or it could be your neutral switch but i would replace the selenoid on the firewall first $15 part

the solenoid on the fender is working fine, i was checking it with a meter as i my friend was turning the key to the start position, there was 12.7 volts at both terminals on the solenoid.

you said you had power on both side of solenoid when trying to start , then it may not be solenoid , but more than likely thats what it is

you could also have bad corrosion on small wire going to starter , overlay that wire and see what happens
