Hello and thank you for your question,If you take your 12 volt test light and or a volt meter are you getting any power at the fuse located in the under hood fuse panel?
Okay but are you getting power to any of them? You will need a 12 volt test light or a volt meter to check them.
Okay , all power to the fuse come from the two fuse link wires that attach to the fuse panel from the starter solenoid. Since you have replace the solenoid ,go back and make sure you did not leave one off and if both are in place then check and see if you have power through them . They are fuse linked wires and if there blown there should be some signs of a heated wire and or melting. See the wiring diagram in the link below.

They should be visible as the mount right on the solenoid just as shown in the wiring diagram . Are you sure they did not fall down when you changed the solenoid.
There is a black and a gray wire link, the black wire feeds the fuse panel and the gray feeds the charging system, do you have power on the black wire link all the way to the fuse panel?
It should provide power to the 50 amp fuse located in the panel.
Okay so do you now have power at the 50 amp fuse as well as the other fuses?
Okay if you have power in and out of the 50 amp fuse the complete panel should have power, does it?
Okay but are the fuses in the block now getting power?
Okay so do you have power to all the fuses in and out of them? You said earlier there was no power to them.
Okay so if that is the case and all the fuse have power then you should have power in the car and it should start.
Do you have power in the interior fuse panel as well?
Okay then you back to a problem with the wiring to the solenoid. Are you 100% sure you have all the wires hooked back up?
Okay but you stated you had no power to anything, is that still the case?
