If you jump the solenoid, do it with a screwdriver quickly then remove it. Once jumped, if the solenoid is bad, the engine will crank and start. Keep the solenoid jumped will have the same effect as holding the key in the start position once the engine starts. It will ruin your starter or flywheel. Touch the two points quickly. If the engine starts to turn over, disconnect immediately, the solenoid is bad.

Daniel. Isn't that some sort of low-voltage relay? It's too small, I would think, to be the high-current solenoid.
