Problem is this time, I'm getting no power to anything. I mean nothing. No buzzers, bells, whistles, lights, nothing.
I just replaced (with new parts mind you) the battery, starter solenoid, starter, battery cables (positive and negative) and now I'm at a loss.
I'm getting power to the solenoid after testing it, but it seems to end there. Frame to battery ground and block to battery ground are also good.
Also no blown fuses.
Any of you out there got a clue?
Almost at the end of my line here and about to drop it at a mechanics and see what tomfoolery they can come up with.
Alright so I switched everything around and I have power to the interior now!
Everything works as it should but when I go to start the truck nothing at all happens. No click from the starter or solenoid.
I tried jumping the posts on the solenoid and was met with a loud pop and spark but nothing else.
Seems like a grounding issue but the starter grounds to the bell housing and that's the only place that comes to mind where a bad ground would come into play. Especially since all grounds on the battery are fine and everything else works just fine.
