#1 check that the battery has a full charge.
#2 check cable connections at the battery.
#3 check that the battery cable connections at ground and at the solenoid are good.
#4 check any and all fuses and make sure the year good if it has any.
I replaced one fuse behind the instrument panel. Couldn't find any more. Are there others?
#5 make sure you did not pinch any wires when you where working on it which could cause a short.
I don't think I did. Did not find any wires that look like they could have been pinched. #6 make sure you have power to the switch and that you have power to the battery cable at the solenoid.
Checked. Power is good at the solenoid and grown is solid. #7 make sure you have the shifters out of gear so that the safety switch are not making you look for things.
Checked. Would this still cause the lights to not come on?
If the starter was bad would this cause the lights to not come on?
