Default 94 Ranger ext cab

I have a 94 Ranger ext cab that will not start. It has a 3.0L with 4sp automatic. I changed the solenoid and that didn't help, I thought it was the solenoid because I used a screwdriver to make contact and the engine started. But when I put the new one in it didn't crank nor did it when i turned the key or when i used the screwdriver again, all the wires were checked and are tight. I just installed a new battery at it is good. If someone needs more info please ask.

It could be the inertia safety switch has tripped. It is located below the glove box at the top of the floor mat/rug on the firewall. It is like a circuit breaker and just needs to be reset. Occasionally the neutral safety switch can do this also. Did you change the solenoid on the fender wall, or the one on the starter?

Thanks Ranerak, but found the issue, I had changed the solenoid on the fender wall and come to find out after removing and testing the starter it was the new fender wall solenoid that was also bad, I exchanged it and it started right up. thanks again.
