First check the solenoids by performing a continuity test on all of them. For all the solenoids that test good, power each one with 24 volts to make sure that the plunger moves. Then go to the timer and initiate an ON cycle for, say, zone one. Go to the zone 1 connector on timer and check for presence of 24 volts ac. If not present try zone 2 for output. If nada then there is something wrong with the electronics of the timer.

No power from key to seloniod

Will it crank in neutral ? I am assuming you have the purple wire on the correct terminal.
Is the starter relay working ?

Wont start just click.

Even after charging the battery or jumping? Do you know where the starter is located and what it looks like? Round, 3 wires coming out of the top, located under the engine at the rear. Check these wires and make sure they are secure. Located on top of the starter is the selonoid which causes the starter to engage. With the vehicle in park, emergency brake applied, have someone try starting it while you lay underneath. Listen for a clikcking to come from the seloniod. Can put your hand on it and feel the click too. If you get a strong click, but the starter does not engage, you may have a bad starter. Not too hard to change out but take battery cables off 1st! Also change the seloniod if you take the starter off. You do not want to do this twice so easier to make sure both parts are new. GT

92 exploer out a new selonoied under hood before that it just click now it starts sometime it still clicks if you jump the 2 termanals on senolied it starts i was doing that today now it has no power...

Sounds like you blew a major fuse and also check the seloniod terminals the wires on one side have fusible link wire make sure there not blown, the fuse box under the hood is where i would check for blown fuses, the starter maybe bad and drawing alot of amps, you may have cooked the new seloniod, i would test for power at the selinoid if there power to it then its bad, the most common reason for a seliniod top go bad is a bad starter, hope this helps

It will not shift out of park

first is to check all the fuses, then check brake light switch, power comes from brake pedal brake light switch, when pedal is push power is sent to brake lights and power is also sent to shift lock seloniod, when this seloniod is power up it releases the arm that keeps the shifter locked. so if theres no power or a bad brake switch then the shifter wont unlock,so start with the fuses then the brake light switch, hope this is helpful.

Ge ice marker no 120v to seloniod water valve

It sounds like the plug-in for the solenoid valve is not making contact with the terminals on the solenoid . You can either buy a new connector or cut the plug for the solenoid and crimp 1/4 inch sta-cons (insulated type) to the wires.

Unplug wires,remove cover there are 2 plastic push in pins holding it. You will have to remove screw in sensor above it. With cover off you can see the 3 bolts holding it on. Pay attention to gaskets and plate. They do offer these rebuilt.

Fridge freezer door ice maker

the ice maker controls the seloniod the icemaker wire arm must be all the way down .just because the seloniod test good doesnt mean the valve seat isnt stuck the water valves open by your house water pressure if your filter is dirty this can also lower the pressure if the icemaker module is bad this also can cause it if you pull the front of the ice-maker off you will se a bunch of holes if you get a piece of 10 Gage house strip about 1/4 inch off either side and insert it into the holes marked t and h that will test cycle the ice maker they will be close together don't get shocked if the ice maker cycles and doesnt fill and the ice maker fill tube isn't frozen replace the water valve if the ice-maker doesn't cycle replace the brown motor module
