Disconnect the battery ground for 15 minutes then reconnect it and try to start the engine. Did you mean to say you activated the starter solenoid? If you did, was the ignition key in the on position. If you are getting fuel and spark it should have started. Also, try to start the engine with the transmission in neutral. Find the starter relay in the fuse box and swap it with another relay to see if that helps. Check all the fuses for a blown fuse.
There are three kinds of 302s made from 1982-2001.
5.0L HO This engine was used in 1983-1995 Mustangs, Mark VII Lincolns, and some T-birds and Cougars. All Explorer 5.0L engines are 5.0L HO engines as well. They use the 351W firing order, 1-3-7-2-6-5-4-8. Except for the 1983-84 Mustangs, all of these engines are roller cam equipped. They use a reverse rotation water pump and front cover. The 1994-5 Mustang and all Explorers use a unique front cover and water pump.
5.0L Full Size Car This engine was used in 1982-1990 Crown Victoria and Grand Marquis. They use the 289-302 firing order, 1-5-4-2-6-3-7-8. Most of these cars are not roller cam equipped, however sometime in the early 1990s they started using roller cams but retained the 302 firing order. They use a standard (clockwise) rotation water pump and front cover.
5.0L Truck (except Explorer) These engines are similar to the Full Size Car engines, except they use different intake manifolds and camshaft profiles. They also use the 289-302 firing order, 1-5-4-2-6-3-7-8. They also began using roller cams sometime in the early 1990s. They use a reverse rotation water pump and front cover.
There are 2 fuse/relay boxes. 1 is on the left side dash panel, just open the door and look at the side of the dash. You will find one there. The other is under the hood, just behind the battery on the left, drivers side.
To be sure that the fuel pump is functioning correctly, is to check at the engine side if there is fuel running to the fuel filter. Otherwise, check the fuse and the fuel injection relay. It could also be caused by a bad battery which you can check using a voltmeter. You could also have a weak starter, especially if your would notice if the past days you have observed the car having difficulties starting up.
Fords have inertia fuel cut off switch. You need to check that first. If you dont have fuel. If you have fuel and no spark you need to check for inj pulse to injector. Make sure no fuses are blown. If no spark and no injector pulse then replace cranksensor.
