wierd starting/ignition issue

What's up yall? I have a 94 astro and it ran fine untill one day it just wouldn't start. I have checked the obvious, batt. conection, fuses, cables and nothing. When I turn the ignition switch, nothing comes on, but there is a switch or solenoid-type thing by the gas pedal that does click back and forth. This makes me think that it is not the ignition switch, but something else. If I go underneath and arc the starter, it works but just won't start the van. Any thoughts?

sounds like a bad solenoid on the starter
He said that he can jump the starter directly from the battery and it will its probably the solenoid on top of the starter. i had this exact problem.
