Please help
It'll still turn over if the crank sensor is bad, it just won't spark.
If you recently replaced the starter, I'd check that first. Most "new" starters are really rebuilt ones, and often have problems. The last time I replaced one I had to return it three times before I got a good one.
Have you tried tapping on the starter itself and then starting?
Also that starter probably has some kind of warranty, I'd go trade it out before the warranty is up!(if it is indeed bad)
Here's basic info on how to check the solenoid-
Also check the ground wires on your power cables, make sure all the connection points are nice and shiny and corrosion free.
