Ok so starter solenoid is bad. The next thing down the line is the starter! It turns over twice, pauses, and then turns over once more. Wait 3 seconds and repeat. Ideas?
Be sure you are using a good charged battery, maybe even try turning the starter with a different known good battery. A starter is an expensive thing to jump into if you're not absolutely sure. Same advise I'd give myself, If I'd only listen.
