Customer Question

2000 F350 7.3 Diesel 4wd. Burnt out something while changing my starter solenoid now I have no lights inside, dash won't light up or anything so I can't start the truck. Batteries are fully charged. No horn. No headlights or anything. I changed the pcm main relay and still nothing. Can't seem to see any burnt out fuses

There are several fusible links (look like a piece of wire) in the power circuit, one or more of which probably got burnt. You can trace the wires coming out of the battery positive posts and you'll find different color fusible links, such as Gray, Yellow and Blue. If I were in your shoes, I'd start looking for the culprit at the starter relay; they might not look burnt, but they'll give when you tug on them.

Please let me know what you find.
