ELECTRICAL or Starter PROBLEMS?

When I got home from the Bret Corvette show today, I parked in front of the Apt in the fire zone to unload my stuff because my garage is a block away... I come out 10 minutes later to put her away and she won't start Nothing, starter won't click or engine won't turn over, but the battery shows power on the amp gauge and jump starting is nada nothing. I even waited an hour in case the starter was too hot. Had to have two guys help me push it a block to my garage.

Just maybe it's an easy fix, but I doubt it... no such thing as an easy fix. I wanted to see what you guys had for suggestions as electical stuff is NOT my fort.

You need to check to see if you are getting 12 volts to the "S" terminal on the solenoid. That is the connection on the starter closest to the engine block.If you are, either the solenoid or the starter is toast.

And how do I do that. I've never fooled with anything electrical before...
