My ignition is not sending power to my solenoid swtch. I have no pwr to crank my car

It all started with a suspected faulty Starter.. While troubleshooting, I bridged the 2 large post on the solenoid with (the one with the power cable and the one with the small braded wire going to the starter.. I received the same thing that I was getting when I turned the ignition (poping noises from the solenoid with) i did this several times, then I pulled the ignition wire off of the solenoid switch and bridged that with the post that the battery cable is on (to see if I could get the starter motor to spin (well, all I got was a clank, which proved that the starter was faulty). All of a sudden, I lost all power at the ignition and nothing comes on (its a 1993 Mustang LX 5.0). If I measure voltage from the batt post of the solenoid switch, I get 12.7v until, I turn the ignition switch on. With the ignition switch on, I get no voltage at all (unless, i pull a yellow cable off of the post that the batt is on (then i get a voltage reading again (replaced the solenoid switch & starter)

Also Make sure all of your power source connections are tight and clean all of your grounds.

Still get the battery checked. They can have enough voltage, but be deficient in amperage, causing a no-crank. If the cables look crappy, replace them.

Hey Meangreen92 is your avatar picture from the movie Dazed and Confused. That was a great movie with a lot of cool cars. Makes me wish I still had my 70 olds cutlass.
