i tested the battarie which is good. I also tested the starter an that is good. I removed and installd new ignition switch, park nutral, and turn signal switch. I also inspected all the wires too and from all the parts on this list but then I found out I have no power to the starter relay on any terminal

ok.

i certainly seems to be a wiring problem,really hard to find.

the only thing you can do here is to start back-tracing the switch[purple] wire from the starter solenoid to the switch till you find power with the switch in the start position..

the only thing i can do for you here is to give you a wire diagram of the starting systen
