The vehicle will occasionally not start, when left sitting for a day or two it will start again. The battery is fine, the starter is new, when you attempt to start the starter does absolutely nothing, you hear the relays activate, but the solenoid on the starter itself seems completely inactive.

You have to trouble shoot the wiring circuit of the ignition switch to starter circuit (differs automatic/manual, and 2WD and 4WD) look at the starter relay, inhibitor switch, ignition switch and look for power at the Black/Purple wire when the engine will not start. Autozone have some popular workshop manuals for free on line once you register (for free) on their website http://bit.ly/autozone_repair_info or there is a company that independent auto repair shops "buy" their information from that offer a very reasonable service to do it yourselvers. You can get a one week subscription or year subscription very cheap. The information is year make and model specific repair procedures, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... great quality information same as the professionals have ,much better than generic workshop manuals from parts stores, much cheaper than the factory manual try http://bit.ly/mitchell_repair_manuals_online

This isn't really a question, rather what was the prognosis? I have the exact same problem right now I have been told it may be the Starter solenoid?
