CJ5 trouble.

Hey ya'll, I'm a fourteen year old boy and this is my first time on one of these things, and I need some help. My CJ5 Jeep won't start, or turn over. We thought it was the solenoid, and replaced it, but even with the new solenoid, it doesn't work. We tried to bench test it, but the thing that we tried didn't work. Any suggestions?

most auto parts stores will bench test starters and alternators for free. call ahead to make sure your favorite store does. napa and a local chain "cost less" both bench test here, as well as schucks used to before they became o'reiley auto parts. now i don't know.

What year is your Jeep? Will your engine turn over with a socket and breaker bar at the crankshaft? Make sure your engine isn't seized-up. That's worse-case, check all electrical connections, from battery to wires at starter.
