Question Starter Relay

Does anyone happen to know the part number for the fender mounted starter relay on a 1996?

My problems are not unlike Muddvol's in Bad starter or something else? . In case it's not the loose wire, I'll need to find a replacement relay if it's bad. Also, does anyone know how to test the starter relay? I want to check it out before pulling the starter itself to be tested. Thanks!

to test it just use a test light and see f you have power to the small red wire coming into the solenoid from the igntion switch if it as power but the starter isnt engaging the solenoid is bad , it should transfer powr to the other side of the solenoid on the big terminal , if its not , then replace it

I stuck a multimeter on the relay and got 12.2 volts. I then jumped the terminals and heard the solenoid engaging with a solid click. Looks like I'll be installing a new starter tomorrow afternoon.
