Cordstumer, If you have not already been advised by some one, you probly fryed the fuseable link from the starter to the ignition. They dont much like being shorted out, but they do protect the rest of the circuts. Rgey are faily easy to replace and not a lot of money. Good Luck and happy motoring

charge the battery.
so that wnen rested it reads 12.6vdc. then it will start.
also check all fuses in both fuse boxes.
they might have tried hot wiring things (like on TV) and blew fuses.

No power to 2000 F 250 7.3 diesel after changing positive battery cables

Did you check both the positive and negative battery cables? The two fuses on the right are voltage for ignition switch. Use a test light, see if the fuse circuits are hot? Should be hot all the time. There are fusible links involved, also. The battery junction box is under the hood.

95 f150 inside ligths stad on tok + cable off battery took fuse out to cut the ligths next day the over drive ligth starter flashing HELP

Im not sure if this is going to be your problem but on f150s 250s 350s rangers and explorers, have very weak door switches that are used to tell the dome light to go out, when it fails the dome light does not go out if you have left the fuse out for the dome light there will be other problems, on most models the fuse that the dome light is on also controls the odometer, windsheild wipers and the electronic shift for the overdrive, generally a quick fix for the problem is to remove the bulb for the dome lamp, and insure the fuse is in properly, if you have map lamps in your vehicle these should still work, the only issue is you will not have a dome lamp when you open the doors only the map lamps youll have to turn on manually, If this does not fix the error with the overdrive most likely have shorted door switches throwing the circuit for a loop

Dome lights won't work or power mirrors

Ford's are notorious for electrical 'ghosts'.
If the fuses are all fine.. and the motors for the windows and the light bulb for the dome light are good... probably not much that can be done unless you want to give it to the dealer for diagnosis and repair, but they'll probably tell you they can't find the problem.
