Unhappy 97 PS key on no power won't start ... ready to pull my hair out !!!

i'm ready to pull my hair out help!!!! my 97 PS started fine ( except for screwed starter) B4 I just installed a new starter and big power cable that goes to the 2 batteries and starter and NOW i have no power @ all anywhere (and obviously won't start) , although strangley enuf when i " short " the terminals on starter solenoid the starter does turn over ...... what could be the problem ? all the fuses are good under hood and dash, but i think i might have wires mixed up on starter solenoid, no WTS lights, radio , lights etc....

got any pictures of how starter solenoid should be done .....

It sounds as if you got a wire mixed up. I don't have a picture to post up. hopefully someone will chime in.

PM sent. From now on you'll have better luck posting in the 94-97 powerstroke technical info thread rather than the roadside emergencies thread. I think they like to keep this thread open to poeple that are stranded alongside the road.
