Hi Ronnie:
It's possible that the solenoid is OK but the wires from the battery to the solenoid, or the solenoid to the starter have failed. I'd suggest that you check the battery terminals for clean & no corrosion, then use a continuity meter to check the wires. A fast test would be to jump the heavy wire terminals on the solenoid. If you get nothing, then one of the wires has a problem.

1996 Ford Explorer won't turn over.

fuel pump will not prevent engine from turnning over. the click you are hearing is the starter silinoid. you have one or more of the following: dead battery corroded battery terminals bad silinoid (or connections at silinoid) bad connections at starter bad starter. if all connections are tight and clean then get some one to turn key to the start position and you check with a test light or volt meter to see if there is 12 volts at the terminals on the silinoid if yes then check the terminal at starter. if all connections are clean what ever piece the voltage stops at is your problem if it goes all the way to the starter but starter will not turn then you need a starter.
Be careful when checking any and all of this dont get any thing you want to keep close to the parts of vehicle that move when running
