Double check your ground. Does it start if you jump the two large terminals on the solenoid with a screwdriver? When you push the button does it click or rattle? It sounds like something isnt getting full voltage without an extra battery. Hook a volt meter to the starter terminal and push the button. See if its getting voltage down there if there is none trace it back. If its full voltages its something in the starter, if there is a voltage drop its the solenoid.
I'm having same issue, when i bridge my solenoid with a screw driver i can get my start to spin over. When pressing the start button I get a faint rattle, but sometimes it'll do a faint click (but very faint, I have to put it up to my ear to hear it.) when I hook up a volt meter to the side of the solenoid that supplies power to the starter I get no volts, but it's a brand new 1PZ solenoid (amazon special).
Probably a crap solenoid..
