If having stuff turned on in the car prevents it from starting, it's not the solenoid.
The proper way to check this is with a voltmeter at the solenoid terminals, when the problem is occurring. If the contacts are bad there will be good voltage on one side and low or no voltage on the other.
Also if it's a battery/voltage drop problem the lights will dim while the attempt to start is made.
