One way to prove that the starter solenoid is bad is to hit the starter while the key is turned to the start position.  This can be a bit dangerous, so be careful.  Grab a hammer or a sturdy piece of wood.  Locate the starter on your vehicle, near the front of the transmission.  On some vehicles it will be very hard to reach.  Have a friend hold the key in the start position with their foot on the brake (and clutch, if your vehicle has a manual transmission). Give the starter a smack on the side or end, while being sure not to damage or dent it.  If the starter runs after you hit it, you know you've got a bad solenoid and that you should replace the starter.  If it doesn't run, you could still have a bad starter, but it could also be something else.

Hope this helps, and remember to be CAREFUL!
