I know theres been a thousand threads on this problem and I've read through as many pertaining my situation as possible but I an figure this out.
I just put in a painless engine compartment harness using the original fuse block. I had to make some minor adjustments but it work out ok, I think. Anyway, after installing the harness the battery went dead the next day. Tried to charge it and it wouldn't take a charge. So I went down and got a yellow top and put it in. Fired right up. Great, I thought. The next day the brand new battery was dead. So I went through all the battery connections from pos to neg and took them off and clean them really well. Took the ground off from the battery neg to the block, block to frame, battery neg to dash, and cleaned them really well. Took that battery out of the equation and used my F150 battery using jumper cables to start it... nothing. So being that some of the electrical components are a little tired I went down and bought a coil and solenoid. Came back put them in and the solenoid is just clicking.
I can't figure this out. Any help would be appreciated.
