what year spider do you have? is it S3 with the white electronics gizmo on the end, or just a rubber boot with 2 spade connectors (S4)?
you say you have cleaned the plunger, do you mean the little plunger that goes thru the cam cover, or, do you mean you have opened the solenoid and cleaned that big plunger?
photo (thanks to mcola/Mike!) shows big plunger inside the solenoid itself.
If that moves freely and the solenoid electronics/coil itself is broken, there is no fix.
