But now truck won't start cause the re is no power to fuel solenoid
Expert:  73bbchevy replied 1 year ago.
ok, so that is a reverse light switch, you will have power coming into the switch on the motor side and when the trans is shifted to reverse the power will go to the other wire to the lights, did you verify if power was on the forward wire?

No I was thinking one was ground
Expert:  73bbchevy replied 1 year ago.
no that is the power signal that is why the light came on when you applied voltage

I've checked all fuses in fuse box
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Unless I put power to the fuel solenoid then it fires right up and runs until I stop energizing
Expert:  73bbchevy replied 1 year ago.
its possible that a fuse was blown by grounding the wire, i will opt out and see if another expert can chime in because i am unfamiliar with the fuel solenoid you are speaking of.
