Default 2001 ranger edge, not getting power to starter

Just found this forum and hope you can help.

My son calls me form the golf course, truck won't start. We've made three trips out there and no success.

It's a 2001 Ranger Edge, 4.0, 4x2, automatic.

When the key is turned we get nothing. All the bells and wistles work when the key is turned to power but when we turn to start there's No clicking, nothing happens.

Charged the battery and had it load tested, checked out fine.

We replaced the neg terminal and cleaned both conections.

I pulled the starter and had it tested. Starter and selonoid works fine on a test bench.

I replaced the neutral saftey switch, adjusted it to neutral, still nothing.

Anyone have a link to the wiring diagram of the starter system?

Now I'm wondering if there's an ignition/starter relay or if maybe he's having an alarm relay problem. It came with a passive alarm that hasn't worked in over a year and isn't alarmed.

Thanks for your help!

Have you been through the fuse panels yet? I would start there before you start randomly throwing money at it replacing parts that aren't broken.

since it is a ford it has 2 solenoids, try testing power to this one and/or jumping across with a screw driver.

The link to the owners manual will help. I own an FSM for all my cars. My son didn't even have an owners manual. We're headed back to take another look in a bit. We'll check all the fuses and relays.

So there's two soleniods on a 2001 ranger edge 4.0? That should explain things.... The local parts house said there's just the one on the starter. They also convinced me it was most likely the neutral safety switch. Not so. That part will be returned.

Thanks for the help!

Still no luck. I've been through both fuse panals and find no faults. The 7.5 amp in the cabin and the 50 amp under the hood are both good. It doesn't appear to be the relay either. When I jump the soleniod it turns over fine but doesn't start.

I cannot find a second solenoid on the fire wall of this truck and have read conflicting stories on this. Does anyone have a link to the wiring diagram for the ignition/starter?

Be sure your not missing any fuses. CHECK THEM ALL! I had this same exact problem like two weeks ago

is there a release button or some kind of trick to removing the fuses/relays under the hood? I'm trying to check fuse 11 (starter/ignition switch) but it seems to be in there pretty good. I dont wanna force it out, but at this point....
