My 93 Burb will not start
It is making a solenoid clicking sound and my gauges go wild when I turn the key.
My Battery has been load tested and is good.
I replaced my starter twice, thinking the first replacement was bad.
I bypassed the ignition switch with my remote starter button hooked up direct from battery to solenoid and still same clicking sound.
What should I do/check next?

It will cost you about $20. The switch looks like this:
