Does it do anything at all? Any clicking or anything or does it do nothing at all? When was the last time it started? When you turn the key, you said the lights come on. What happens when you try to crank it? Do the lights dim?

COULD be a completely bad battery... but I might be wrong. If the lights dim when you try to start it, I'd think its the battery... autozone or discount auto parts tests and charges your battery for free... just take it out and run it down there...

have a friend give you a hand... take a hammer and tap the starter while trying to crank it over. If it kicks, your starter is toast. If not... youve got electrical problems.

Oh and BTW.... you didnt change out your starter solenoid.... not on a 95...

becuase you cant get just a new solenoid, its part of the starter.
