Default 96 Bronco No Start

My buddy (hondadirtracer) picked up a 96 Bronco a couple months ago and he went to take it out today and it would not start. It has done this a handful of times in the past and he has just unhooked the battery for a few minutes and then hooked it back up and it was fine. It has not done it the last few weeks and then today it did it again. He has unhooked the battery for about 10 mins and it still won't start. There is no starter click at all like a dead battery. There is a relay clicking in the relay box, but the starter relay on the firewall is not clicking. Thinking I am going to try replacing that, but wanted to get some insight before he starts throwing parts at it because he is quite broke right now. Thanks in advance for the help.

Any chance hooking and unhooking the battery cables wiggles a loose connection in the battery clamps? My truck will do this if the cable clamps are loose.

I was able to get it started by using a jumper wire across the terminals on the solenoid on the passenger fender.

Replaced the solenoid on the fender and threw a new icm and cap on it because they were laying around. No problems so far.
