Still could be a bad cable, you may have to do a voltage drop test on all of the cables, and remember there is another solenoid on the starter itself. see pic.

Sounds like winter woes and a battery which does not have enough cold cranking amps to do the job. Have a load test performed on the battery at a place like autozone, it's free.

After u verify battery is good, try starting starter dircectly at the starter by momentary jumping between small terminal and battery wire at starter to see if still a starter issue or signal coming into starter
