cj7 no power

I just got my 1984 cj7 running after its been sitting for about 5 years i replaced the whole fuel system and starter solenoid and battery. I started it and drove it for the first time today and tried to start it again but i had no power. I turned the key and nothing happened it wouldnt crank,no lights,iv checked fuses, and traced wires.

Check and clean the battery cables at the block, solenoid ( both sides),and alternator. This includes grounds. If you can get it started ( by jumping), check the output of the alternator. Or take it to get it checked.

Yep I'd first clean the battery terminals. They can get a thin coating of corrosion between them that will stifle conduction. If they are fine, use a test light and follow each wire (+&-) to it's next connection.
