umm this might sound like a simple solution but have you tried chargeing your battery, sometime they do that when the battery doesn't have enough juice to crank the starter

I just had that problem recently. Becuase of the audio/video system in my car, the battery was being drained. The solenoid was okay, but the battery was not. I replaced it with two Optima yellow tops, and I was good to go.

Like Viper said, charge the battery and see what happens.
