If it will not start by jumping the "S" terminal to power at the solenoid, then the problem is limited to the battery, cables, solenoid or starter.
Start out by removing all the cables and wire brushing both the cable end (eyelet) and the post they bolt too. These often have a corrosion issie that is not visible.
