I normally test suspect starters with a remote starter tool,
Which is basically two wires/clips and a button in the middle.
You can buy them but for a one off just pull the small wire of the starter and connect a long jump wire to the same terminal,
Now the other end of the wire you touch the battery pos+ and if the starter/wires are good it'll spin over.
Doesn't even need the key on.
BUT DO MAKE SURE IT'S NOT GOING TO ROLL.
I've seen people being run over by the car they're working on drive off un driven as it were.
'course if the keys in the run position and the starter spins it ought to start and run.
If not then it's electrical.
