the starter is at the front of your car.. get on your back, and slide under the front of your car at the very middle, and it's right there on the back side of the radiator...

The switch that controls the clutch is at the top of the clutch assembly.. there are two switches.. the one opposite the firewall is for the cruise control, and the one closest to the firewall is the one that tells the car the clutch is pushed in, so it's okay to start... I'm not sure how you'd disable it though...

(btw, I may have gotten those backwards.. hehe).

to answer your question... all you have to do to test your starter is a set of jumper cables. first make sure your car is in gear( so it doesn't go anywhere ) then connect the jumper cables to the battery. then get under the car and connect the other side of the jumper cables to the starter. if you come back with more question after this process it has to be your starter.
