dj5 electrical firework show.

im pretty new to this whole electrical thing and i tried to trace wires without opening the wiring harness and ran a ground to a bad place. firework show and now none of my electrical works. the vehicle i own is a 1975 dj5 and heres a picture of where i ran the ground too. ive replaced the solenoid as you can see but it didnt seem to help. any ideas on what other parts i might have fried and is in need of replacement? i dont see any melted wires.

Sounds like you may have blown a fusible link (if it has one) so now there's no power going to the fuse block.

What's the point of posting a picture that is so blury it looks like something attacking the Enterprise?


Looks like you grounded the hot power strip.
If it's insulated, and that one kind of looks like it might be,
Then it's usually HOT wires, and shouldn't be "Grounded"...

Buy a $6 Test light and learn to use it,

It would have saved you the $10 worth of fusible links you are probably going to replace already,

And lots of other nasty stuff in the future...
