I have put a new starter on and it wont start
Put a voltmeter across the terminals (main current supply) and check for power. If power get someone to try start and watch the voltage, it shouldn't change, if it drops dramatically you have a cable/joint/fuse/battery problem. If no power, then look for cable/fusable link problems.
If it doesn't change and has power, check the solenoid terminal to earth, it should have no power until a start is attempted. If it doesn't have power when a start is attempted check the connectors back to the ignition key (you'll need a wiring diagram.)
If you do get power when trying to start remove the starter motor and check it... The solenoid should:
1/ Kick the drive gear forward
2/ close a set of 'power' contacts to drive the starter.
If you get a 'click' when installed (1) is usually happening, but it may be there is dirt on the shaft which stops it getting to (2) and therefore it won't kick the engine over... a well placed hammer blow can sometimes prove that, but it's better to just take it off the engine and test it on the bench.

Lambda sensor signal wire
If u mean bypass as in putting a new wire in, I'd be in plugging the Ecu connector and lambda sensor then running a simple test to make sure u got the right wire , a four wire lambda is 2 heater wires usually the same colour which when on is positive 1 5v Ecu feed and a earth
