have you checked your ignition switch?

Are there 2 small wires that bolt onto the solenoid? or just the one. Never the less if you have a test light & a helper, when you turn the key the one or one of the two wires become live to activate the solenoid. Possible if two wires that there on the wrong terminals, and need to be switched. Same for the one wire, may be on the wrong terminal.
