When you have an engine that will not turn over when you hit the starter button you have one of two problems most of the time. The most common is your battery either is to low to crank the engine over or it doesn't have enough cold cranking amps. I know you said all of the other electronics worked, but that doesn't mean anything. Take the battery and have it tested. If that doesn't fix it the next most likely thing to check are your grounds, they have been known to vibrate loose.
If it still won't crank your starter is most likely the problem, pray it isn't because that's about five hundred bucks.

Engine will not turn over

we are going to need more information than just that. But some common tips. Check to see if you have juice left in your battery. check the connection between your positive terminal of the battery and the sylinoid. also between the sylinoid and the starter.

Replaced starter and sylinoid in my 1989 f250 still wont start

If the old solenoid had a bad short it may have put your new starter out of commission. Have the starter tested-it should still have warranty for repllacement.
