Help!! Won't start shorted starter

I was pulling the tranny for converter/re-build tranny work. Thought I had disconnected the batteries but I accidently shorted out the starter underneath the truck. Truck won't turn over with key no signal to the selenoid on the fender. Starter is good I can short across both big terminals on selenoid on fender and it will turn over. I can apply 12 volts to the small post on the selenoid and it will work. There is no power on the small wire to the selenoid when I turn the key. No blown fuses that I can find? What did I blow????

If all your fuses are good, see if you have power coming out of the ign. switch. You may have a bad switch or a blown fuseable link.
