Battery and sylnoid hooked up correctly? How was it running before you had to replace these items? Did it just go dead and leave you stranded or did you just go out to crank it and nothing happened so you replaced the items? More detail as to what lead up to the changing of the items would be helpful to us trying to help you.

Check your wiring down by the starter for damage. Perhaps a wire is touching the (very) hot exhaust manifold, melted the insulation, and now you have a bad short which is blowing fuses and preventing the truck from starting. HTH. -Jim

I went out to start it and it wouldn't start. it didn't even make a noise. the battery was dead when they checked it at Auto zone so I got another one. I replaced the Solenoid and wired them correctly as instructed. them. I found the fuses blown and tried replacing them but it just blows more. I will check the wiring by the starter today and see what happens. I will post here after doing so. Thank you and Blessings

Sounds like a bad ground. Check your instrument cluster for any loose, missing, or corroded ground wires/straps. Also check your ground (-) battery cable. Be sure all connections are clean and tight. Put some Vaseline on the battery posts and cable ends that bolt to the battery. They'll never corrode again. HTH. -Jim
