Re: no electrical at all
Fusable Link Should be Checked with Test Light. The Problem is Obviously a Power feed Problem Check the Power at the Solinoid there has to be an OPEN Power Supply Wire somewhere there ,Also check BODY GROUNDS,

first you have to make sure full batt power available, second turn the key (if any) to on position . third jump contacts on the starter motor to create power circulation and hear if starter o selonoid works.
check for power at starter and also check for power on ignition wire on starter selonoid while ignition is turned to start position. be cautious as it could engage. do you have power to trk radio,lights etc?? If not then check all batt cables connections to batt and grounds and to starter. also check fuses for a starter relay.
Check the battery +12v power connection to the starter is in good order,
Check the ground connection between the battery negative and the engine/starter motor is robust and intact.
If no problem with above, replace the starter motor.
Hi, if when you turn the key to start the car the engine dont turn over as if its trying to start then this indicates that you have a problem with your starter motor it is the selanoid on the starter starting to fail
Sometimes it will turn the engine over starting the car and other times it will do nothing and you might here a slight clocking noise coming from the starter motor.
If your battery is ok and holds the charge ie the lights are bright without the car running then this indicates that your battery is ok and that the starter needs replacing. Sometimes you can get away with giving the starter motor a few taps with a hammer this sometimes clears any muck inside the starter selonoid getting it working for a bit longer but eventually it wont work at all so its best ot get this done sooner rather that later.
Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok
The problem you are encountering is the starter it self. Sometimes the starter will hang up due to age, corrosion, etc. The solenoid you replaced was new? I had the same problem with my 66 Mustang and whacked the starter to clear it up and has been working great since. Hope this helps;
Thanks and rate me high;
the selenoid is on the starter on those model if i remenber on the selenoid itself you got the battery cable and a small wire that small wire sometime get corosion on it get somebody to turn the ignition kee at the same time wiggle that little wire car should start clean the therminal and voila hope it FIXYA problem pierre
