Electrical problem.

I have a 2001 E350 stroker. I went to start it in 20 degree temps. It turned over twice and I heard a loud click,somewhere in the right front end, everything went dead. Both batteries show fully charged, all fuses show power on both terminals with a test light. Nothing powers up! Got any clues for me?
Thanks for any help!

Same thing happened to me once. I don't think the temp had anything to do with it. You may want to check the ground on the selonoid mounted inside the right fender. It's much easier to pull the battery out to get to it. Clean up all the connections on it and hopefully thst will help.

Yeah not temp related. It is always slow to crank when cold, unless plugged in. I was caught off guard with the low temps and was attempting to move it close enough to plug it in at 2:30 AM. Didn't make it! I'll try your suggestion, if that doesn't fix it, is there a way to test to see if that solenoid is bad? Thanks for your help.
