2000 F350 wont start
Solved... had it wired wrong
Drove it to check on live stock, died on me, I only got a click when I turned the key, so finally got it started by jumping the solenoid relay.. got it home and change batteries just because they were getting old and replaced the solenoid. I disconnected the negative on on battery and as I was putting the solenoid in touched a couple wires and POW.. big sparks. Now, I get nothing at all. No lights, nothing with I turn the key.. everything is dead.
After that I checked all the fuses ( again) in the cab. Tried to jump the solenoid relay, the starter cranks but wont start. I'm no mechanic but need the truck running soon, got a load of hay I need to pickup now that snow has set in. And I know... I really screwed up on the sparks... should have disconnected the positive as well... kicking myself all day or that one. Probably fried something expensive for sure.
Ideas? Where do I start?
