That doodad is connected directly in series between your ignition switch
"start" position and your starter solenoid wire.

Rule out dead battery first
rule out dead starter second

put key in "run" and carefully "jump" starter solenoid terminal from
battery terminal

check the two small wire starter connections... are they swapped,

As I recall, this problem arose out the blue, not after recent repairs
or work.

Remove starter from car, fire it up with jumper cables (carefully).  if
it doesn't jump across the floor when it kicks in, you need a new one.
