I believe my starter motor died the other day. After I parked it for a few hours, turning the ignition produced an electrical whine, but no engine turnover. I tried again over the next few days, but the results were the same. I removed the starter and solenoid and was wondering how I can test it now that it is removed from the vehice. I would like to know if the starter is bad or if just the solenoid is bad, or if neither is bad and the problem results from elsewhere.
