    Starter solenoid is a common weak spot. Relatively cheap and easy to replace. Try measuring the voltage at the solenoid when pushing the start button one side is 12V all the time from the battery the other side should be 12V when pushing the start button. If you get the click and no 12V at the starter side then the solenoid needs replacing.

    You have voltage, do you have the amps to turn it over? Try jumping the two posts on the solenoid.

    Yep, starter relay solenoid.

    And I disagree about being easy to R&R, it was a PITA to get to the 2 bolts holding that thing to aluminum bracket holding the fuses, and wire harness. After dropped bolts, nuts, washers, cut up arms, hands, sockets, socket wrench, etc. I finally realized it would help if the battery was out of the way for access. Have fun!

    Ended up testing the solenoid and it was good on mine (original but still good) so I replaced the starter and bingo, better than new, stock starter had a dead spot it liked to go to and new SBT starter kicks it over awesome every time. Was no easy task getting old one out and new one in! Need lots of patience getting it to pop out and back in but it is doable!
