93 Ford F150 diagram from battery to relay to seliniod to starer

There is a common issue with this year and I have run into it maybe 100 times, The ignition starter switch (located near the bottom top of the steering column) is defective, the switch halves come apart and this causes a no start. Hook a test light up to the fender solenoid, when the key is held in start position the little wire (solenoid signal wire) should light a 12 volt test light, if not you are not getting any power from the ignition starter switch. The switch is very cheap and easy to replace.

Replacing ignition switch

If you have to jump start the car, it had to be either the batter or a connection problem with the battery cables. Having to jump start a vehicle does not have much to do with the ignition switch, unless you are having to jump power to another location to get the car to crank.

Why wont my car start?

If the two you crossed were on the starter solenoid, then it's not getting juice from the ignition switch. Possible reasons include:
Make sure it's in neutral or park, clutch depressed. Then possible problems are bad ignition switch (have you had any problems like having to wiggle the key to get the starter to work?); open fuse (check fusebox); open fusible link or wire (troubleshoot with meter and wiring diagram); bad switch on clutch or gearshift mechanism. (One way to determine if one of the switches is bad is to short it with a wire and see if it starts then.)

It sure sounds like the switch, but it may be the key cylinder binding. If the key turns to the same place it used to then replace the switch. If it dosen't then replace the key cylinder.

Replacing starter solenoid

You may have hooked some wires up incorrectly. The smaller diameter wires on the small posts go to different items. One goes to the starter and the other to the ignition. Sometimes the little black bonnets that plug on to the terminals are marked. (S for starter and I for ignition.) You can also jump across the terminals to bypass the ignition switch to see if you even get power to the starter. Let me know what happens.
