you can check it with a test light, if the starter is getting power from the battery and the solenoid is getting power from the starter relay when trying to start and you have a good ground at the starter/engine block it should start if the battery's are in good condition.
mine did the same thing and i took it off, dissasembled it for inspection. it fell into a million pieces when i took the bolts out...lol

The solenoid on the starter or the one on the passenger side inner fender ? make sure your getting power and ground at the starter. If so then your gonna need a starter.
Look around, after I bought mine I found a sweet deal on the exact brand as the original equipment for half the price.

Sounds like a bad connection to me, but it could be the starter, those things are expensive so I'd check batteries and connections out real good before replacing the starter.

Here is a pic where you can see the starter and solenoid hanging from the red wire

the starter has a solenoid on it also, should have a large wire that supplies Battery voltage and a smaller wire that is energized (min of 10V) when the ignition is in start position.
