Did you try jumping the vehicle or have battery charged before or after installing the new starter and solinold ?

No radio or lights signals a bad ground connection or a bad battery. Just because a battery has 12 volts does not mean it has the amperage to crank the engine. If you have another vehicle with a battery try swapping them out temporarily to see if it starts. If it does then use a multi-meter and make sure the alternator is charging.
