STARTER's SOLENOID TERMINAL VOLTAGE CHECK

(1995 Chevrolet Lumina)
in Moorpark, CA on August 27, 2013
I am checking my 1995 Chevy Lumina-sedan 3.1L LS' starter's solenoid. I connected a voltmeter to the solenoid terminal (S), and its ground. Then, I turned ignition switch to start up the engine.

what should be the proper voltage range during the engine's cranking? The battery voltage was at about 12.45 Volts. Thank you for your answer!!

BTW: for my Lumina, is the neutral safety switch on the auto transmission block, or near the steering column? or the car has both switches? A dealer's catalog shows both switches!!!
