That is the start solenoid engaging, so it IS getting power. If the cable leading from it to the starter is also getting power when engaged, then likely a starter issue. If the power is not making it to that cable, then the solenoid is likely bad.

j, Try putting a set of jumper cables on the starter directly to the battery and see if it will turn the motor over. If it does, it's a bad solenoid, if it doesn't, the starter needs rebuilt. You may have a starter, alternator rebuild shop around your area, if so take the starter to them and see what they want to rebuild.

the starter was moving last night, slowly, and struggling. can i rebuild it myself? =D i know a kit is 55 bucks, which i would invest since it would increase my turn around.
